Freddie Francis

Adapted by the book by John Wyndham, Howard Keel plays the American naval officer whose eyes are bandaged when a shower of meteorites blinds most of humanity.

He leads an ill-assorted group of sighted people against the Triffids: 7-foot-high plants with the ability to move and attack and are attracted by sound.

Keel uses this to attract them to a saltwater grave over a cliff top.
