Whistling Hills Details


Though ready for release in 1951, Whistling Hills ended up as western star Johnny Mack Brown's first entry for 1952. This time, Johnny comes to the aid of sheriff Dave Holland (Jimmy Ellison) when a band of stagecoach robbers plague the countryside. The masked bandits use the "whistling hills," a natural phenomenon, to signal the arrival of each stagecoach. Johnny and Dave spend the bulk of the film trying to figure out the identity of the man behind the holdups (the audience may well be several steps ahead of Our Heroes). Noel Neill, who later gained fame as Lois Lane on TV's Superman, serves as romantic interest for Jimmy Ellison. Johnny Mack Brown would star in five more westerns in 1952 before hanging up his six-guns. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
