20,000 Eyes is a 1961 American drama film directed by Jack Leewood and written by Jack W. Thomas. The film stars Gene Nelson, Merry Anders, James Brown, John Banner, Judith Rawlins and Robert Shayne. The film was released on June 14, 1961, by 20th Century Fox.



Needing money in a hurry for a diamond-mine interest, investment broker Dan Warren decides to embezzle $100,000 from a client, Kurt Novak, a criminal himself. Novak discovers the theft and gives Warren five days to pay him back or else meet with an "accident."

Warren hatches another scheme. He conspires with secretary Karen Walker and business partner Jerry Manning to steal some diamonds, then collect an insurance payoff. The robbery goes off as planned but the money can't be paid in time to suit Novak, who shoots Warren in revenge. Just before he dies, Warren is able to cause Novak's death as well.
