Wait Until Dark Samantha Jones 1967

Samantha Jones as "Lisa" in WAIT UNTIL DARK

High fashion model Samantha Jones plays a small but pivotal role as ill-fated drug smuggler Lisa in the 1967 thriller film "Wait Unitl Dark", which was based on the 1966 Broadway play by the same name.

A fortune in heroin sewn inside a doll tempts drug courier Lisa into going into business for herself instead of just smuggling it into the US from Canada.

Seeing her handler (Alan Arkin) waiting for her at the New York airport, she asks a stranger (Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.) to hold the doll for her, which becomes lost in plot twists.

The handler punishes Lisa for her treachery by killing her (off screen) and leaving her hanging in the apartment closet owned by the stranger and his blind wife (Audrey Hepburn).
