Unusual storyline makes this one stand out
6 July 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

WHISPERING TONGUES is a short British crime film made at Twickenham Film Studios and featuring a rather novel, revenge-style plot line. The hero of the piece, played by the charismatic Reginald Tate, is both the protagonist and antagonist of the piece! Tate begins the film by returning to England from South America, where he literally stumbles upon the corpse of his father who has just committed suicide. How's that for bad timing?

Tate discovers that idle gossip was responsible for his old man's death, so with the aid of his ex-con butler he decides a revenge plot is in order. What follows is a cat and mouse game with police and a fair few suspenseful moments as Tate sets his plan into action. The low budget of WHISPERING TONGUES is apparent in the dearth of action and the way only a couple of sets are used, but I found it oddly engaging. The unusual story makes it stand out from the typical contemporary fare and one scene in particular has some quite wonderful writing between Tate and Malcolm Keen's dogged detective. Felix Aylmer plays in support as the police chief.
