Description by OLDIES.com:
The Whispering Chorus (1917) was a revolutionary psychological drama when first released -- noted for its multiple exposures representing the whispering chorus of a criminal's conscience. The film also features dramatic parallel editing used to explore character rather than merely to heighten tension in a chase. Through the years The Whispering Chorus developed a misplaced reputation as an artistic triumph but a box-office failure. It has been said that DeMille's disappointment with its reception pushed him from artistry to popular pandering. However, recent research demonstrates that the film was in fact a commercial success, and its thematic concerns continued to motivate DeMille's later work.
