The working title of this film was Checkmate for Murder. As in the other pictures in "The Whistler" series, this film opens with the shadowy figure of "The Whistler," who whistles a haunting tune and then declares, "I am The Whistler, I know many strange tales." The voice of The Whistler also closes the story, revealing the fate of the protagonist.
