1 DOLINSKY, MEYER, ANTHONY TOLLIN & BILL NADEL Script for a Radio Production of The Whistler, “Seven Steps to Murder” Written by Meyer Dolinsky and Prepared by Anthony Tollin and Bill Nadel
Los Angeles CBS Radio 1947 
Photocopy of the original 19 page unbound script for a radio broadcast of The Whistler, ‘Seven Steps to Murder' which aired on Monday, February 6, 1947, written by Meyer Dolinsky and prepared by Anthony Tollin and Bill Nadel. This episode was directed by Terry Ross, and starred Jimmy Monks, Alice Reinheart, Florence Williams, Frank Bresee, and Peg Lynch. A few minor marks, else fine. The Whistler was one of the Golden Age of Radio's most popular mystery shows, running from 1942 until 1955, and featured the spooky introduction: “ 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. I know the nameless terrors of which they dare not speak.” which was spoken over the distant echo of footsteps and composer Wilbur Hatch's 13-note theme, whistled weekly by Dorothy Roberts for 13 years. The Whistler was adapted into a film noir series from Columbia Pictures, with the first seven featuring actor Richard Dix in the title role.
