The Private Eyes Movie Online
The Private Eyes is an 1980 American comedy mystery film starring Tim Conway and Don Knotts. The pair play bumbling American detectives who (unexplainedly) work for Scotland Yard, obvious parodies of Sherlock Holmes & Doctor Watson. The movie was filmed at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, North Carolina. The film opens early in the twentieth century, at an English country mansion with the apparent murder of Lord and Lady Morley in their car by a figure in a black cape. Inspector Winship (Don Knotts) and Dr. Tart (Tim Conway), two American detectives transferred over to Scotland Yard, then travel to the Morley mansion, brandishing a letter from the late Lord Morley asking him to investigate his own murder. They encounter the beautiful heiress, Phyllis Morley (Trisha Noble) and a questionable staff, which includes Japanese samurai caricature Mr. Uwatsum (John Fujioka), hunchback Jock (Irwin Keyes, busty maid Hilda (Suzy Mandel), gypsy Mr. Tibet (Stan Ross), and insane butler Justin (Bernard Fox), to mention a few. As the two investigate the murder, They come across Uwatsum, who has been slashed with a sword and seemingly killed. The rush to warn Phyllis, but when they come back, Uwatsum's corpse is missing. Phyllis doesn't believe them and walks away. As they walk through the graveyard, they notice Tebit digging a hole near a gravestone. He lies to them, saying he is digging for worms to go fishing with. As the inspectors walk away, they hear a bloodcurdling scream and rush to the graveyard, where they see Tebit had apparently buried himself in the hole, and committed suicide by suffocation. Rushing to the stable to warn Jock, the inspectors find him dead, and run away to warn Phyllis. Justin informs them that there were no corpses in the graveyard or the stable. Convinced no one will believe them, they decide to check Lord Morley's crypt in the graveyard to make sure he's still dead. They find a scary puppet in the grave. Terrified, they run away, and tumble down the steps.
