1750 - Hear No Evil, See No Evil
I can't tell you how many times I watched this film as a kid - and I recently saw this on a friend's netflix cue and so it brought back so many memories. For those who haven't seen it, it's a classic comedy about a man, Gene Wilder, who is deaf and befriends a blind man, Richard Pryor, and the hijinks when they get mixed up in a murder. This was my introduction to Pryor and he did so well with it that for a long time I actually thought him to be blind. Ahh the magic of cinema when you're a kid. It's a fun high-concept film that really does well by it's concept. Kevin Spacey plays a moustache twirling villain here. If you've never seen it it's worth giving it a click - a solid rainy afternoon comedy flick :)
