Facts about

Wait Until Dark was actually the second movie to use the climatic sequence where the villain is presumed dead, but actually isn't. Les diaboliques was the first film to use the villain-presumed-dead sequence, to great publicity effect including a spread in 'Life' magazine featuring that film's then-considerable shock value. Films after Les diaboliques and Wait Until Dark that used this scare tactic include Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and Fatal Attraction.
A revival of the play, directed by Leonard Foglia, opened on April 5, 1998 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, where it ran for 97 performances. The cast included Marisa Tomei, Quentin Tarantino, and Stephen Lang.
Audrey Hepburn's film residence is at 4 St. Luke's Place in Manhattan.
