What is he whispering about?
11 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

Richard Carlson is the parachuted in American actor,with the mysterious name of whispering,mainly for the benefit of the RKO release in America.Lots of familiar faces cant inject life into this torpid thriller.The action only starts in the last 20minutes.Greta Gynt is glamorous and Herbert Lom is not to be taken at face value.Bray and its studio very much in evidence.
