Wait Until Dark (1967)

Susie's (Audrey Hepburn) husband is asked to hold a doll for a woman as they get off an airplane. She disappears. Mike (Richard Crenna) and Carlino (Jack Weston) are small time hoods who find the woman's body in Susie's apartment, placed there by her partner, Harry Rote. Susie's blindness is the key to them searching the apartment for the doll that contains smuggled drugs. Mike pretends to be an old friend of Susie's husband while her husband is away and together the crooks invent a story of a police investigation of her husband that only the discovery of the now missing doll can save him from. Rote is a killer, and his stalking of Susie becomes more and more obvious as the story unfolds, leaving us with the question, how does a blind woman defend herself?/p>

otsoNY Comments: Although I've followed in the footsteps of others with this location and decided on number 4 St Luke's Place, if you look carefully as Audrey Hepburn's character heads back inside her apartment, the number 27B can be seen quite clearly.

Susie's Apartment, 4 St. Luke's Place and Hudson Street, Manhattan.


Thank you for visiting otsoNY, a free service since 2009. We have lots of ideas to help increase the awareness of the website as well as development new features such a Virtual Tour Guide, a Film Location App for your mobile and a otsoNY Hardback Book, but none of this is possible without financial backing. Our overhead costs such as hosting, server space and support maintenance have also increased over the years and otsoNY is now at risk of shutting down without financial help. Any donations are much appreciated to keep otsoNY online.
