Wait Until Dark

Wait Until Dark is a 1966 film which tells the story of a blind woman terrorized by two criminals searching for drugs in her apartment. It stars Audrey Hepburn, Alan Arkin, Richard Crenna, Efrem Zimbalist Jr.[?] and Jack Weston[?].

The movie was adapted by Robert Howard-Carrington[?] and Jane Howard-Carrington[?] from the play by Frederick Knott[?]. It was directed by Terence Young[?].

It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress (Audrey Hepburn).

When the film was initially released, theaters dimmed their lights to as low as they could, then turned off one light as each light in the apartment on-screen was shattered, until all of the lights in the theaters were completely turned off.
