Book Vs. Movie:
Wait Until Dark
The 1966 Richard Knott Play Vs. the 1967 Audrey Hepburn Film

The Margos kick off “Scary Movie Month” by discussing Wait Until Dark, both the play by Frederick Knott and the 1967 Audrey Hepburn film. The movie features one of the best jump scares in cinema history. The original production starred Lee Remick and Robert Duvall as Susy and Roat, respectively. The story revolves around Susy, a blind woman who lives alone in her Greenwich Village apartment, and Roat, a creepy intruder who wants to find a doll filled with heroin that her husband accidentally brought home.

Roat and his two cronies play games with Susy, but she ultimately prevails with a bit of courage and some help from her young neighbor, Gloria. Remick’s performance earned her a Tony Award nomination, and the play was quickly adapted into a feature film by producer Mel Ferrar (who was also Hepburn’s husband at the time).

The movie is consistently ranked as one of the most influential thrillers of all time. So, which did we prefer: the play or the movie?

In this ep, the Margos discuss:
