THE BAT WHISPERS (1930) is a mystery film directed by Roland West, produced by Joseph M. Schenck, and released by United Artists.

A mysterious criminal by the name of "The Bat" eludes police and then finally announces his retirement to the country, while a wealthy Cornelia Van Gorder takes up residence in the estate of a famous banker. Along with her maid Lizzie, her niece Dale, and a bank teller disguised as a gardener, she is terrorized by a series of strange events seemingly set in motion by the mysterious bat. Possible suspects include a doctor, an elderly police lieutenant, a butler, a handyman, and a big-city cop.

"Now you think you've got me, eh? There never was a jail built strong enough to hold The Bat. And after I've paid my respects to your cheap lock-up, I shall return, at night.
The Bat always flies at night-and always in a straight line!". The Bat
