Gene Wilder and Richard Pryor share a comic chemistry that led to four collaborations between them. Of the four, the film that perhaps best utilized the pair’s comedic style was the lighthearted, if politically incorrect comedy See No Evil, Hear No Evil. Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment has decided to bring the film out of the archives with a new DVD release this autumn.
A man is murdered. Two men witness it: a blind man who hears the killer, and a deaf man who sees her. The police don’t think they’re credible witnesses, but the killers don’t want to take any chances. The two men must now work together to save themselves and bring the killers to justice.
“See No Evil, Hear No Evil” will be given both fullscreen and anamorphic widescreen transfers to go along with the original 2-Channel Dolby Surround track. The disc will be light on features, but will include theatrical trailers.
The DVD will be available on October 30th, and will carry a suggested retail price of $19.95.
