Description by OLDIES.com:

An actor who plays a detective on the radio tries to solve a real-life muder.

Product Description:

The Milton Berle starrer WHISPERING GHOSTS was clearly inspired by the Red Skelton comedy-mystery WHISTLING IN THE DARK (itself inspired by Bob Hope's THE GHOST BREAKERS). Uncle Miltie is cast as H. H. Van Buren, a radio sleuth who delights in solving real-life mysteries ahead of the official constabulary. At the behest of his sponsor, Van Buren tackles an unsolved case from ten years earlier: the death of an old sea captain. To this end, he visits the ship where the dirty deed took place, accompanied by his nervous valet Euclid (Willie Best, who played much the same role in GHOST BREAKERS). At first convinced that the ship is haunted, our hero deduces that the "ghosts" are actually a gang of crooks, in search of the treasure left behind by the murdered skipper. The arrival of Elizabeth Woods (Brenda Joyce), the lawful heir to the missing treasure, convinces Van Buren to stick around for a while to solve the decade-old murder and locate the captain's legacy. Why is it that none of Milton Berle's vehicles for 20th Century-Fox--WHISPERING GHOSTS, OVER MY DEAD BODY, MARGIN FOR ERROR--have shown up on TV since the 1970s' Now there's a mystery worth solving!
