Exclamation Replacing an *OLD* Door knob...

How in the world do you get THIS off of a door?? I've already done ONE by just tearing it off and pretty much killed the door, and that was a one sided inactive knob. The other two are working and definitely can't just tear them out like I managed with the first one. There are no screws visible.

Gotta love Beverly Hills and how disgustingly old everything is

The brand is Lockwood, but 2 of the 3 knobs didn't have a brand name on them. So I've answered my own question... There is a small hole and a slot in the doorknob stem. Use a very small/skinny screwdriver or something similar to press into the hole, while pulling the knob very hard. After it finally comes off, pry off the thin metal cover on the remaining base. (I jammed a nail underneath the entire piece to raise it up enough to use the back of a hammer to separate the cover.) The screws to easily remove the knob are underneath the cover.
