Quotes

Suzy Hendrix: I won't give it to you.
Roat: "I won't give it to you"? "I won't give it to you." You remind me of somebody else who said that! Only she said..."I don't know where it is! I don't know! I don't KNOW I DON'T KNOW I DON'T KNOW I DON'T KNOW I DON'T KNOW!"

Chilling Play
15 March 2004 | by Stapa-BomarSee 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.
