Product Description

The Whistler was a televisions series from 1954-1955 with only 39 episodes being broadcast. Episodes of The Whistler began with the ominous narration:

"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. Yes... I know the nameless terrors of which they dare not speak".

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. ===============================================

THIS IS A VERY RARE AND HARD TO FIND SERIES

This is an extremely rare set of 27 of those great classic tales of mystery and suspense. The quality is slightly below our usual standards (shows vary between 7.5 with some as good as 8), however we feel that the stories are so well done that most serious collectors will overlook the lower grade quality just to have this impossible to find series.
