The Power of the Whistler. 1945. USA. Directed by Lew Landers. 66 min.
Screenplay by Aubrey Wisberg. With Richard Dix, Janice Carter, Jeff Donnell. The third film in Columbia’s Whistler series finds Richard Dix as an amnesiac wandering the streets of Greenwich Village. Janis Carter is the good-hearted young woman who takes pity on him and—big mistake—decides to find his true identity. A powerfully conveyed sense of claustrophobia and pervasive cruelty makes this one of the most distinctive films of its director, Lew Landers, a B-movie stalwart with close to 150 features to his credit.
