Wanted: Treasure Hunt Comedy


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the title of this movie? In this comedy people were following clues to find a treasure. Several times someone took a mask of and turned out to be somebody else. At the end they found the treasure. It was a paper saying something like "friendship is the real treasure".

Judging from the faces turning out to be face masks that get removed, it sounds a bit like Murder By Death, but I don't remember if there was a treasure hunt.  I think they were just trying not to get killed.  Here are a few candidates from my list.  Disclaimer - I haven't seen many of these yet.


Murder, He Says (1945) - Fred MacMurray • Helen Walker • Marjorie Main

A pollster stumbles on a family of murderous hillbillies, and joins in their search for hidden treasure.


Murder by Death (1976) - Truman Capote • Peter Falk • Alec Guinness • Elsa Lanchester • David Niven • Peter Sellers

Five famous literary detective characters and their sidekicks are invited to a bizarre mansion to solve an even stranger mystery.


The Old Dark House (1963) - Tom Poston

An American who sells cars in England receives a mysterious invitation from an old, eccentric millionaire to visit his house in which he lives with his twin brother.


One Body Too Many (1944) - Jack Haley • Jean Parker • Bela Lugosi

An insurance investigator arrives at a creepy mansion to protect a millionaire who has had death threats made against him.


The Housekeeper's Daughter (1939) - Joan Bennett • Adolphe Menjou

A mobster's moll leads a newsman, cub reporter and photographer to a scoop.
What looks like a serious crime drama turns screwball, like a guy that insists on serving poison coffee to his guests, and a shootout between two guys with fireworks and a third guy with a gun.


The Cat and the Canary (1939) - Bob Hope • Paulette Goddard

When an eccentric family meets in their uncle's remote, decaying mansion on the tenth anniversary of his death for the reading of his will, murder and madness follow.
