Approximately 40 minutes of the 59-minute Whispering Winds were filmed with sound; the rest, to quote Shakespeare, is silence. Malcolm McGregor plays a handsome Maine fisherman who falls in love with local songstress Eve Southern. McGregor in turn is loved by the girl next door, Patsy Ruth Miller. Unable to compete with the saucy Southern, Miller can only sit at home and pine away for McGregor. But this dilemma is solved by Southern, who dumps the boy in favor of a stage career. Whispering Winds exists today only because film-buff John Cocchi found a copy of the film in the attic of his sister-in-law's grandmother; unfortunately, only four of the film's six reels could be preserved.
