Wait until Dark (1967)

34 And the Lord said unto Moses, Fear him not: for I have delivered him into thy hand, and all his people, and his land; and thou shalt do to him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon. 35 So they smote him, and his sons, and all his people, until there was none left him alive: and they possessed his land.  Numbers 21:34, 45

I was so happy to have found this one.  We all know to tell the story without thinking.  I recognized the terror of invasion in my very private place – a small basement apartment in the movie.  She is a frail and blind woman all alone in it while her husband had to be away when three men broken into her home.  She was terrified.  But then she starts to do things to fend herself which will ultimately lead to defeating the three evil invaders.   She knew that it’s a matter of time before her help will come.  She just had to hold out until then.
