Last film in Columbia's Whistler series and the only one without Richard Dix. Based on a story by Cornell Woolrich this is a neat little mystery that wastes not a minute of its 62 minutes. Michael Duane's fiancee (Lenore Aubert) goes missing on their proposed wedding night and he sets out to find her with the help of a private eye. But all is not what it seems and the story twists and turns to its climax. An entertaining hour. Rating ***

See the whole film on THE INTERNET ARCHIVE.

I should have mentioned that this film features Cerpts' ideal woman - restrained in a straitjacket and screaming in a sanitorium.

Sounds like my ex.

Sadly I've never seen this film. I've only seen THE WHISTLE OF THE RETURNER. Not quite as good.

With the Woolrich plots and director William Castle, this is one of the best and least known film series of the forties. I haven't caught up with this one yet, and that still has me drooling.
