This film's earliest documented telecasts took place in Altoona PA Tuesday 7 May 1957 on WFBG (Channel 10), and in Salt Lake City Wednesday 15 May 1957 on KTVT (Channel 4). Doomed by its age, obscurity, a cast of mostly forgotten players, and a pre-code story that was already long out of date, it was eschewed by the major markets, and only occasionally taken off the shelf in less predominant locations where its short running time filled the need of cannon fodder for insatiable early and late show mid-week time slots. It first aired in Tucson 27 August 1957 on KVOA (Channel 4), in Portland OR 31 December 1957 on KGW (Channel 8), in Miami 23 January 1958 on WCKT (Channel 7), in Charlotte NC 18 February 1958 on WBTV (Channel 3), in Honolulu 8 March 1958 on KHVH (Channel 13), in Norfolk VA 18 July 1958 on WTAR (Channel 3), in Kalamazoo 30 August 1958 on WKZO (Channel 3), in Tampa 1 October 1958 on WFLA (Channel 8), in Philadelphia 23 October 1958 on the All Night Movies on WFIL (Channel 6), and in Windsor ON 20 May 1959 on CKLW (Channel 9) (serving Detroit). Today it's in the vaults of Turner Classic Movies and is occasionally taken out for an airing on cable TV on TCM, much to the gratitude of a new legion of vintage film enthusiasts who appreciate the opportunity to take a fresh look at it.

Richard Dix & Una Merkel Gave Great Performances !
If you like Classic Films with great actors, try to catch this film on TV. Richard Dix(John Day),"The Secret of the Whistler,'46 was a man wrongfully accused and sent to prison, his wife (Madge Evans), "Army Girl",'38 was fooling around and was killed and his children were left in the care of Una Merkel (Mamie),"SpinOut",'66,who talks with a very high pitched voice and very dippy. Una Merkel was a film actress from the early 20's, 30's and 40's and could play any role she was offered to perfection. There are actual outdoor scenes of John Day fighting above the streets of Los Angeles on roof tops and lots of model T Fords running all around throughout the city. If you look close, you will see a great film actor when he was young, Raymond Hatten (Hart) who appeared in 349 films, one "Shake, Rattle & Rock" '56. Samuel S. Hines,(O'Farrell),"Bed of Roses", who also appeared in many great Classic films, appeared in 210 films. If you love Richard Dix as the "Whistler" on Radio and TV, this is your kind of movie.
