The Whistler

Buy Tickets

(1944) dir William Castle w/Richard Dix, Gloria Stuart, J. Carrol Naish [59 min; 35mm]
William Castle cut his teeth working on almost 40 cheapo B-movies for Columbia Pictures before he became an independent operator. One of his biggest successes was this convoluted mystery thriller and its subsequent sequels. Spun off from a popular radio serial, THE WHISTLER tells the tale of a disgraced industrialist who anonymously hires a hitman to bump himself off. When his fortunes change, however, he tries to cancel the contract but can’t connect with the killer.

No trailer available.

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
