Dave Lyons (Gene Wilder) is a deaf pawnshop owner and Wally Karew (Richard Pryor) is his blind assistant.  One morning while Wally leaves to retrieve a newspaper a beautiful woman named Eve (Joan Severance) enters the shop, followed by an unnamed man.  When Lyons' back is turned Eve shoots the man and flees.


Lyons is oblivious to the event until Wally arrives and discovers a dead body on the floor.  Police suspect that Wally and Dave are responsible for the murder, and both men aresubsequently jailed -- only to be bailed out by Eve, who wants them dead.


See No Evil, Hear No Evil was a commercial success, earning $46 million at the box office, easily recuperating its $18 million budget.
