VOICE OF THE WHISTLER (1945)
A chillingly ironic tale of lust and deception, the fourth film in the WHISTLER series is also one of the most haunting and memorable. Richard Dix plays a wealthy man who has been diagnosed with a mysterious illness. He falls in love with the beautiful nurse who is tending to him and he offers her a large sum of money if she will marry him, knowing he has just a short time to live. She greedily accepts the offer, spurning her fiancé in the process. Fate takes an unusually sharp turn when murder makes an uninvited appearance! Co-starring Lynn Merrick, Rhys Williams, and James Cardwell. Directed by William Castle. In B&W. Presented in a BRAND NEW, RESTORED 35mm PRINT! 60 mins. 1945. THURS at 8:00 only.
When a beautiful young woman is rejected by the rugged lighthouse keeper she’s in love with, she marries his co-worker out of spite. The three of them wind up living together at the remote lighthouse where jealousy and murder soon fester out of control. Combining elements of subsequent Hugo Hass-style melodramas and typically surreal PRC atmospherics, this moody obscurity turns out to be one of the strangest Poverty Row noirs on record. Starring Don Castle, June Lang, and John Litel. Directed by Frank Wisbar (“Devil Bat’s Daughter,” “Strangler of the Swamp”). In B&W. 16mm. 62 mins. 1947. THURS at 6:45 and 9:15.
