WAIT UNTIL DARK
June 19, 2017  | By David Bianculli

TCM, 10:15 p.m. ET

 

Audrey Hepburn Mondays on TCM this month continue, and tonight the schedule includes one of her best, and darkest, roles. In 1967’s Wait Until Dark, she plays a blind woman who runs afoul of, and eventually becomes terrorized by, a ruthless drug smuggler, played by a young, scary Alan Arkin. This movie thrilled me as a kid – and since it’s a thriller, that reaction was entirely appropriate. Watch it now: It still works perfectly, and there’s still one scene, set in almost total darkness, that’s utterly brilliant as pure cinema.
