Movie in the Meadow







      Did you know Red Skelton was actually in a murder

mystery movie? Whistling in the Dark is a 1941 comedy

film starring Red Skelton as Wally "the Fox" Benton,

who writes and acts in radio murder mysteries. Wally

is kidnapped by a greedy cult leader (played by

Conrad Veidt), who threatens to kill Wally's girlfriend

(portrayed by Ann Rutherford) and another young

woman unless he concocts a perfect murder. The

film was based on the Broadway play of the same

name by Laurence Gross and Edward Childs Carpenter.

Two sequels to Whistling in the Dark are Whistling in

Dixie (1942) and Whistling in Brooklyn (1943).
