Directed by William Castle
Starring Richard Dix, J. Carrol Naish, Gloria Stuart
William Castle’s second time out as director and the first of the eight-picture series based on radio’s The Whistler program. (Castle would direct four of them.) This is a top-notch little mystery/noir film — and it’s a real treat to have it make its way to DVD from Sony’s Choice Collection. This series has been on my Want List for decades.
Directed by Lew Landers
Starring Richard Dix, Janis Carter, Jeff Donnell
This third Whistler picture has Lew Landers at the helm. Though Richard Dix is in seven of the eight films, he plays a different character each time. Otto Forrest is the narrator. Again, it’s coming from Sony’s Choice Collection.
