Roat: Oh, Suzy! You don't have to be ashamed. Everybody's frightened of something, I... ooooooo! I have gasoline here! Gasoline. Hmm? Gasoline. This place will go up like a matchbox! The big question, Suzy, is do you want to be outside in the street? Or locked in there with Mike? It's up to you. So, will you give it to me now?
Suzy Hendrix: No.
Roat: 'I won't give it to you'. 'I don't know!'. 'I don't know, I don't know, I don't know I don't know I don't know'. THEN, as it always happens, finally something seemed to ...

Chilling Play
15 March 2004 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

This version of Wait Until Dark is actually a stage play, which I believe is the original format of which the 1967 film is based. This was the first version I ever saw, it was shown on HBO repeatedly in the early 80's. It has been over 20 years since I have seen it, so it's only fuzzy memories that I can reflect upon. I believe it to be the same plot as the film version, which is basically a few men trying to get back a loaded teddy bear from a blind woman (Suzy) who knows nothing about it.

There were many things about the story that I have always enjoyed. One thing was the teamwork required to manipulate Suzy. Also, Suzy's determination & will to go on during frightening circumstances. Another aspect of the story that I enjoyed was the varying degrees of evil within the bad guys.

The chilling music was another standout of this version. I recommend it, now if only I could find it somewhere.
