ANNOUNCER “I am The Whistler. And I know many things, for I walk by night. I know many strange tales hidden in the hearts of men and women who have stepped into the shadows.” The two-octave range of the theme made it an extremely difficult assignment for whistlers, and the only person who ever mastered it was a girl, Dorothy Roberts. Starring: Bill Forman, Marvin Miller, Everett Clarke – 16 half-hour original network broadcasts. You might also enjoy THE SHADOW MOVIE COLLECTION.
The Whistler was identified by the mournful whistling of the theme music. He never actually participated in the dramas. He observed the actions of the participants and commented on the ironies of life. Most of the episodes in Volume One of this series are from the sustaining CBS East Coast shows from 1943. These are full-length uncut half-hour shows. Sparkling Quality.
