Wait Until Dark

Why would Susy strike a match?

One word: gasoline

One of my all-time favorites.
I saw it at the Coral in Oak Lawn IL (now defunct). Saturday matinee, good-sized crowd, first-ever jump scene - the crowd took several minutes to come down from it. Now that everybody does this, the effect is sort of diminished ... but the rest of Wait Until Dark is still quite effective.
By the by, I looked at it again not too long ago; Efrem Zimbalist's character is named Sam Hendrix (as in "Sam and Susy").

As long as I'm here (off-topic):
Websense, the censor program that my office IT employs, is blocking JD Rhoades's blog, giving as its reason "Adult Content".
This is only in the last week or so; I've never had a problem there before.
Don't ask me what exactly Websense means by "Adult": I'm coming up on 63 years old, which most people accept as adult, and I can't figure this.
Not your problem, really, or even Mr. Rhoades's for that matter, but I thought you might like to know.

Thanks, Mike. I've corrected the "Sam" stuff. The old memory isn't working as well as it once did.

I'm not sure what adult content is causing the problem with Dusty's blog. I haven't noticed that he's been posting any any nude selfies or anything.

I saw this as a kid, sat up close to the TV. When the big shock moment happened, suddenly I found myself on the other side of the room. I only saw it that one time, but it's stuck with me all these years. But even at that age, I knew that last scene was just wrong.
