Voice of the Whistler is a 1945 American mystery film noir based on the radio drama The Whistler. Directed by William Castle, the production features Richard Dix, Lynn Merrick, and Rhys Williams. It is the fourth of Columbia Pictures' eight "Whistler" films produced in the 1940s, the first seven of which star Dix.


A dying millionaire, trying to do good, marries his penniless young nurse so she can inherit his wealth and live in comfort. He then miraculously recovers, but the troubles for both husband and wife are just beginning.
