Whistling in Brooklyn (1943) is the third and last film starring comedian Red Skelton as radio personality and amateur detective Wally "The Fox" Benton, following Whistling in the Dark and Whistling in Dixie. Wally prepares to marry his girlfriend, but gets sidetracked when he is mistaken for a serial murderer. Leo Durocher made his screen debut, playing himself, and Hilda Chester, the Brooklyn Dodgers' "superfan" also made a brief appearance, playing herself.
