VINTAGE FILM Wait Until Dark

Wait Until Dark

Of all the Audrey Hepburn films featuring music by Henry Mancini, the scariest is easily this home invasion thriller that shocks the senses: Hepburn’s character can’t see, and Mancini’s orchestra features two pianos out of tune with each other. If you don’t think a 50-year-old film can scare you, consider this: Hepburn’s top-billed co-star Alan Arkin had a full head of hair before it came out.
