Wait Until Dark | 1967
It's bad news for blind Susy Hendrix (Audrey Hepburn) when ruthless psychos discover that a cache of drugs is hidden in her New York apartment. This great little suspenser, prefiguring David Fincher's The Panic Room, contains one of the all-time great seat-jumping moments.
Susy's basement is the classic 1860s townhouse at 4 St Luke's Place, off Hudson Street in a classy part of Greenwich Village. Incidentally, her neighbours include, at number 12, that nice family the Huxtables, from TV's The Cosby Show.
