NotesHorror story in which blind woman (Hepburn) is alone in apartment threatened by drug dealers. Very talky film, legacy of stage play presumably. Hepburn's character lost her eyes in car crash but no scars. Action is confined to one room 99% of time. Unbelievably, considering how wooden she is, Hepburn was nominated for an Oscar. The nominees must have got her mixed up with another Hepburn. The original play is/was revived on Broadway with Marisa Tomei and Quentin Tarantino. Anyone who has seen Tarantino in his own films knows he's a below par actor so he was brave to go on stage. And clearly nothing has changed as far as casting sighted actors to play blind characters.
