The Whistler

"I am the Whistler, and I know many things, for I walk by night. I know many strange tales, many secrets 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". These opning lines, delivered by Bill Forman, began each weekly episode. As near as I can tell, the show ran from 1942 to 1952 on the CBS Pacific Network, then CBS broadcast it nationally until 1955.
