THE POWER OF THE WHISTLER – Power 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 WHISTLER – A 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.
MYSTERIOUS INTRUDER – Mysterious 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 RETURN OF THE WHISTLER – 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.
