The Secret of the Whispering Walls is a good one
13 February 2017 | by bensonmum2See all my reviews

Nancy interrupts a break-in and robbery at her home. The only thing that appears to be missing is some paperwork related to the sale of her two aunts' home. While her Dad heads off to replace the missing documents, Nancy and George go to the aunts' home to stall for time. Once there, Nancy discovers some strange goings-on. One of her aunts tells a story of hearing spirits in the walls that don't want them to sell. Quite naturally, Nancy investigates and finds a series of passageways and tunnels. Her big break in the case is the discovery of a $20 bill near an old burn pile. Can Nancy put the pieces together and solve The Secret of the Whispering Walls?

Ah, how watching this show takes me back to a simpler, more innocent time. I remember waiting each week for Sunday night and the latest installment of The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries. I was in the perfect demographic for the show. While I was always more a fan of the Hardy Boys - their episodes were usually more interesting - The Secret of the Whispering Walls is a good one. The mystery isn't too difficult to solve, but watching Nancy and George go about their investigation is a lot of fun. I'm always a sucker for secret passageways and such. The aunts, played by Queenie Smith and Irene Tedrow, add a bit of comedy that works for me. Throw in a red herring in the form of a nasty neighbor and everything is in place for a good, enjoyable episode.
