About Whispering Smith
WHISPERING SMITH stars Western icon and WWII hero Audie Murphy. Inspired by the 1948 Alan Ladd film of the same name, and based on official files from the Denver Police Department, the series stars Murphy as soft-spoken Police Detective Tom “Whispering” Smith. Smith—along with his partner, played by pop-star Guy Mitchell—protected the railroad from robberies, fraud and other criminal activities, using early methods of forensic science to capture lawbreakers. Notable guest stars include Oscar®-winning actor Robert Redford, as well as Richard Chamberlain, and GILLIGAN’S ISLAND Skipper Alan Hale, Jr.
