See No Evil, Hear No Evil is a comedy of errors about two men who witness a murder. The unique twist in this story is that Dave, played by Gene Wilder, is deaf and Wally, played by Richard Pryer, is blind. The two men have never met before but become entwined in each other’s lives when a man is murdered at the newsstand where Dave works. Their adventure then begins. The murderer knows who they are; they know who the murderer is but do not realize that they know. The police think they are the ones who killed the man because they are in the wrong place at the wrong time and Dave touches the gun. Dave and Wally do not get along at first as they run from the police and the criminal. The two men also set out to find out who killed the man so that they can clear their names. They end up having more adventures than they have ever had in their lives while running from the police. The police chief becomes extremely frustrated with them as they stay one step ahead of him all of the time. Both men have struggled with relationships. They do not have a lot of friends and do not trust many people. All of the sudden in an instant, they have to help each other as they go on their adventure. Wally becomes Dave’s ears and Dave becomes Wally’s eyes. They end up experiencing things that neither one of them has ever experienced because of their limitations. They do things that a blind man and deaf man should not do such as Wally drives a car with Dave’s help. Once again, the police chief is baffled by the two men. Will they find the killer? Will the killer find them? Will they be caught by the police and will they become friends? They have their work cut out for them as they search for the killer and run from the police. The adventures that they go on are dangerous and comical. The two men keep the police officers and the criminals on their toes the whole time that they work on solving the murder and proving to everyone that they did not kill anyone.
