Red Skelton unleashes live-wire goofiness as the Fox, a radio sleuth in Whistling in the Dark [Disc 1], Whistling in Dixie [Disc 2], and Whistling in Brooklyn [Disc 3] with Whistling trilogy co-stars Ann Rutherford and Rags Ragland.
"The screen needs smooth comics like this one," The New York Times' Bosley Crowther wrote about Red Skelton's starring debut in Whistling in the Dark [Disc 1]. What was true then is true today when Red unleashes live-wire goofiness as the Fox, a radio sleuth kidnapped by crooks wanting him to devise a perfect murder. The result? Perfect chaos! Whistling in Dixie [Disc 2] plunges Red (and Whistling trilogy co-stars Ann Rutherford and Rags Ragland) into a magnolias-and-mayhem mystery about Confederate treasure. In Whistling in Brooklyn [Disc 3], the Fox is on the lam as Suspect #1 in a murder. His path leads him to baseball's Ebbets Field, where he takes the mound. The Fox doesn't just throw screwballs, he is one!
