THE WHISTLER - THE FILMS COLLECTIONTHE FILMS COLLECTION - 4 DVD - 8 MOVIESThe Whistler was adapted into a film noir series of eight films by Columbia Pictures. The "Voice of the Whistler" was provided by an uncredited Otto Forrest. In the first seven films, veteran actor Richard Dix played the main character in the story -- a different character in each film. In the eighth film, made after Dix's retirement, Michael Duane played the main character.The Whistler (1944) (Directed by William Castle)The Mark of the Whistler (1944) (Directed by William Castle and based on Cornell Woolrich's story, "Dormant Account")The Power of the Whistler (1945)Voice of the Whistler (1945) (Directed by William Castle)Mysterious Intruder (1946) (Directed by William Castle)The Secret of the Whistler (1946)The Thirteenth Hour (1947)The Return of the Whistler (1948THE WHISTLER MYSTERY SERIES - Starring Richard DixDVD 1THE WHISTLERThe first in an 8 movie series based on the popular radio series. Tense, suspenseful drama directed by William Castle and starring Richard Dix.MARK OF THE WHISTLERThe Whistler, the unseen mystery-story narrator of radio fame, relates another tale that he's gleaned from "walking by night" in Mark of the Whistler. Richard Dix stars as a drifter who poses as the owner of an unclaimed bank account. Dix's new identity brings him nothing but misery as he falls victim to the actual claimant's startling secrets, lost loves and dangerous enemies--including one bent on killing for revenge. The second of Columbia's Whistler series, Mark of the Whistler was an enormous improvement on the first film, with a healthy number of unexpected plot twists within its 60-minute time frame. Mark of the Whistler was based on a story by Cornell Woolrich and directed by future horror specialist William CastleDVD 2THE POWER OF THE WHISTLERPower of the Whistler once more stars Richard Dix as the tortured protagonist. This time, Dix is cast as an amnesiac named William Everett, who is given aid and comfort by pretty Jean Lang (Janis Carter). Assuming that Everett has been victimized by someone, Jean tries to help him regain his memory. This proves to be a major mistake, which Jean's sister Frances (Jeff Donnell) discovers to her horror. Though it was fascinating to see Richard Dix in an off-the-beaten-track role, Power of the Whistler isn't up to the standard set by the first two "Whistler" films: even so, the climax, staged in the loft of a deserted barn, is a beauty.VOICE OF THE WHISTLERA millionaire only has six months to live so he marries his nurse who does not love him. He promises to make her sole heir to his estate. After marrying her they move to a lighthouse where she finds herself filling in love after he makes a miraculous recovery. Things go fine till the man the woman jilted to marry the millionaire tries to kill the man.DISC 3MYSTERIOUS INTRUDERMysterious Intruder was the fifth entry in Columbia's B-picture series based on the radio anthology "The Whistler". Richard Dix, the leading man in all but one of the "Whistler" films, stars as duplicitous private eye Don Gale. Motivating the storyline are a pair of priceless Jenny Lind wax recordings, which are coveted by a Swedish millionaire. Someone is willing to kill to get his or her hands on the records, prompting Gale and the cops to conduct a citywide search for the killer. The film's resolution is surprising only to those who hadn't seen the previous "Whistler" films, but it still works.SECRET OF THE WHISTLERThe Whistler, mysterious narrator of the radio series of the same name, "knows many things" for he "walks by night." This time the unseen whistler knows all about mentally disturbed artist Richard Dix, whose first wife died under mysterious circumstances. Wife Number Two (Leslie Brooks) begins to suspect that Dix's earlier spouse may have been murdered, and that the artist was the killer. In a tense finale, the second wife uses psychological warfare to turn the tables on the homicidal Dix.DISC 4THE 13TH HOURDix, the trucking company owner, is pitted against time to discover who murdered a police officer rival of his. He must do so to clear his own name, as the murder was pinned on him.THE RETURN OF THE WHISTLERThis time around, hero Ted Nichols (Michael Duane) tries to ascertain the whereabouts of his wealthy fiancee Alice Barclay (Lenore Aubert). Finally locating the girl in a mental institution, Nichols discovers that she's been placed there at the behest of a man named John (James Cardwell), who claims to be her husband. Private eye Gaylord Travers (Richard Lane) suspects there's more to this than meets the eye-especially when all records pertaining to Alice's previous existence mysteriously vanish. Return of the Whistler was scripted by Cornell Woolrich, who was doing this sort of Alfred Hitchcock stuff long before he ever worked with Hitchcock himself.THESE ARE REGULAR DVD DELIVERED IN A BOX SET WITH ART WORKBONUS DISC: OLD TIME RADIO COLLECTION1 DVD-ROM - 517 mp3 - Total Playtime: 235:08:19The Whistler is one of American radio's most popular mystery dramas, with a 13-year run from May 16, 1942 until September 22, 1955.The Whistler was the most popular West Coast-originated program with its listeners for many years. It was sponsored by the Signal Oil Company: "That whistle is your signal for the Signal Oil program, The Whistler."Characters and storyEach episode of The Whistler began with the sound of footsteps and a person whistling. (The Saint radio series with Vincent Price used a similar opening.) The haunting signature theme tune was composed by Wilbur Hatch and featured Dorothy Roberts performing the whistling with the orchestra.The stories followed an effective formula in which a person's criminal acts were typically undone by either an overlooked but important detail or their own stupidity, except on some rare occasions when a curious twist of fate caused the story to end happily for the episode's protagonist. Ironic twist endings were a key feature of each episode of the series. The Whistler himself narrated, often commenting directly upon the action in the manner of a Greek chorus, taunting the criminal from an omniscient perspective.Bill Forman had the title role of host and narrator. Others who portrayed the Whistler at various times were Gale Gordon, Joseph Kearns, Marvin Miller (announcer for The Whistler and The Bickersons and, later, Michael Anthony on TV's The Millionaire), Bill Johnstone (who had the title role on radio's The Shadow from 1938 to 1943) and Everett Clarke. Cast members included Hans Conried, Joseph Kearns, Cathy Lewis, Elliott Lewis, Gerald Mohr, Lurene Tuttle and Jack Webb.Writer-producer J. Donald Wilson established the tone of the show during its first two years, and he was followed in 1944 by producer-director George Allen. Other directors included Sterling Tracy and Sherman Marks with final scripts by Joel Malone and Harold Swanton. A total of 692 episodes were produced, of which over 200 no longer have copies in existence. In 1946, a local Chicago version of The Whistler with local actors aired Sundays on WBBM, sponsored by Meister Brau beer.EPISODES LISTThe Whistler 42-05-16 (001) RetributionThe Whistler 42-06-13 (005) Shrunken HeadThe Whistler 42-06-27 (007) Notes in the NightThe Whistler 42-08-22 (015) Death Has a ThirstThe Whistler 42-08-29 (016) The LetterThe Whistler 42-09-05 (017) House of GreedThe Whistler 42-09-13 (018) MirageThe Whistler 42-09-20 (019) FogThe Whistler 42-09-27 (020) JealousyThe Whistler 42-10-04 (021) Urge to KillThe Whistler 42-10-11 (022) MaliceThe Whistler 42-10-18 (023) Death Comes at MidnightThe Whistler 42-10-25 (024) The AlibiThe Whistler 42-11-15 (027) ApparitionThe Whistler 42-11-22 (028) The Other WomanThe Whistler 42-11-29 (029) AvariceThe Whistler 42-12-13 (031) The AccountingThe Whistler 42-12-27 (033) Double CrossThe Whistler 43-01-03 (034) The WeaklingThe Whistler 43-01-10 (035) The NemesisThe Whistler 43-01-17 (036) The ThiefThe Whistler 43-01-24 (037) Mind over MatterThe Whistler 43-01-31 (038) The ConfessionThe Whistler 43-02-07 (039) In the DarkThe Whistler 43-02-14 (040) Legacy of DeathThe Whistler 43-02-21 (041) Fool's GoldThe Whistler 43-03-28 (046) The PenaltyThe Whistler 43-05-01 (050) The KillersThe Whistler 43-05-08 (051) Death Has a ThirstThe Whistler 43-05-15 (052) The Man Who WaitedThe Whistler 43-05-29 054 Final DecreeThe Whistler 43-06-05 (055) Shadow of a MindThe Whistler 43-06-12 (056) JusticeThe Whistler 43-06-19 (057) House of FearThe Whistler 43-06-26 (058) The Blank WallThe Whistler 43-07-02 (059) The AvengersThe Whistler 43-07-09 (060) An Eye for an EyeThe Whistler 43-08-13 (065) Death in the AirThe Whistler 43-09-03 (068) DestinyThe Whistler 43-09-10 (069) Tangled WebThe Whistler 43-09-24 (071) Blind AlleyThe Whistler 43-10-03 (072) MirageThe Whistler 43-11-21 (079) Patients for the DoctorThe Whistler 43-12-05 (081) The TwinThe Whistler 43-12-19 (083) Death Demands a PaymentThe Whistler 44-06-11 (108) The Doctor Prescribes DeathThe Whistler 44-07-23 (114) Last of the DevereauxThe Whistler 44-07-30 (115) Till Death Do Us PartThe Whistler 44-09-03 (120) Practically FoolproofThe Whistler 44-09-10 (121) Local StormThe Whistler 44-09-18 (122) Black MagicThe Whistler 44-09-25 (123) Married to MurderThe Whistler 44-10-02 (124) Not If I Kill You FirstThe Whistler 44-10-09 (125) Finders WeepersThe Whistler 44-10-16 (126) The Tale The Dead Man ToldThe Whistler 44-10-23 (127) Death Carries a Lunch KitThe Whistler 44-10-30 (128) The Beloved FraudThe Whistler 44-11-13 (129) Beware the BridegroomThe Whistler 44-11-20 (130) Death Sees DoubleThe Whistler 44-11-27 (131) Death Walks a TightwireThe Whistler 44-12-04 (132) Doctor Operates in CrimeThe Whistler 44-12-11 (133) Lie or ConsequencesThe Whistler 44-12-18 (134) WindfallThe Whistler 44-12-25 (135) Christmas BonusThe Whistler 45-01-01 (136) Two for the MoneyThe Whistler 45-01-08 (137) The Body Wouldn't Stay in the BayThe Whis
