I am looking for a movie, but I'm kinda fuzzy on the details.
Basically it's about this old rich man who dies, and it's all about the family fighting for the inheritance. There is a black butler who I think was the old man's right hand, and he is in charge of distributing the inheritance or something.
I think the old man left some mysterious gift, and they all want it.
Do you know when about you saw it? In color, I’m guessing? Because there are a bunch of B&W mysteries like that. My first thoughts were of Greedy (’94) and Get a Clue (’97), but neither has the details right, in particular the butler you mention. Also, do you remember if it was a comedy, or a mystery, or a drama, or what?
Not saying it's this one, the one I'm thinking of is Scavenger Hunt 1979, "Milton Parker has made millions inventing and selling games. Upon his death, his relatives and domestic staff gather for the reading of the will. However, Old Mr. Parker is a game player to the last, and his will stipulates that a Scavenger Hunt will be held to determine the beneficiaries of his sizeable estate. The winning team gets all the money, the rest get nothing."
