    The Mob gets a little crazy.

    The Busy Body isn't the funniest mystery-comedy but it has a lot of twists in it to keep it interesting. With some great music by Vic Mizzy (who did the theme to the Addams Family as well as many of Don Knotts films) and the first appearance of Richard Pryor in a film, this zany film will keep you entertained. The film was directed by William Castle who was known for some of his horror movies - the original 13 Ghosts and the original House on Haunted Hill with Vincent Price.
