William Castle’s 2nd directorial effort (following the failure of his 1943 film The Chance Of A Lifetime) was The Whistler based on the popular radio program. As a contract director for Columbia, Castle would go on to direct 3 more films in the popular Whistler series.
Vincent Price on Laura’s Shelby Carpenter :
"I loved him. He was a wonderful character-a real upper-class scum! He was really elegant. Everything about him was charming, but he was a schmuck. He was a terrible man and he was such fun to play because he didn’t know that. Most villains don’t know they’re villains at all.”
