The Whistler (suspense anthology)

    (Syndicated, 1954)

    [This short-lived TV series was based on the famous radio 
     series of the imagination, which aired on CBS radio from 
     1942 - 1954. 39 TV episodes were syndicated by CBS Films.

     As on radio, Dorothy Roberts whistled the THEME melody, and
     the TV version was also narrated by Bill Forman. But the
     concept didn't translate well to TV. Radio apparently allowed
     for "better pictures" in the mind of the listener.
     Harold Dickinson may have been the arranger of the piece.]

Theme: "The Whistler"

    [aka: "The Whistler Theme"]

    [same theme as the radio series with the melody eerily whistled.]

     Composer: music by Wilbur J. Hatch (ASCAP/BMI), 
               Harold H. ("Hal") Dickinson, Jr. (ASCAP),
