Overview

Wacky comedy doesn't come any broader than The Private Eyes, featuring '80s favorites Don Knotts and Tim Conway as bumbling detectives attempting to find out who killed Lord and Lady Morley. The small distributor Hen's Tooth Entertainment brings The Private Eyes to DVD for fans of this low-budget comedy. The bad news is that The Private Eyes is presented in a very grainy full-frame transfer. The blacks were not always solid, though the colors were usually bright and clear. Certainly a widescreen version is preferred, or even a cleaned-up version of the print. The audio for The Private Eyes is presented in a less than stellar Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono track. No subtitles are included, though the Dolby 2.0 track is clear of any distortion. Extra features include a scratchy full-frame theatrical trailer for The Private Eyes, as well as a commentary track featuring Tim Conway and producer/director Lang Elliott. The track is a lot of fun, including zingers and production information from both men. The Private Eyes is not as up to par as it should be, but it could have been much worse.
