Just watched the movie "To Have and Have Not" for the first time. In the last minute, as Bacall and Bogart depart, the band plays a tune with what looks like a tin whistle. It is end blown and has no keys so I would bet money on it. I would paste in a snapshot if I knew how to do that. Any one else noticed this & could comment on it?

Thanks, dunnp. I did not think to look for the movie clip on youtube. It seems you can find almost anything on youtube.

Sure sounds like one, too.

You think you found something new & it turns out that some C&f person found it before. Thanks, all.

It's too bad that the musicians were never
credited in those days. That's Hoagy Carmichael
at the piano so it was probably a guy from his band,
or perhaps either of these guys. I looked for fotos
of the following players to no avail.
Anyway here's some new whistle playing
from the swing era at least to my ears.

Yep....looks and sounds like a whistle to me! Anybody know the maker by this short clip? Don't get much of a look-see. I saw a movie a long time ago with Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney....Judy was singing with a 1940's western swing Band ...a large one too! The Band had three fiddles and a guitar player, Dog House bass player Four back-up singers(sons of the Pioneers type guys)all matching H Bar C shirts and pants. And, last but not least a whistle player Key of D brass with Black head shell(looked like a Dixon Trad). Whistle player took the solo! This was early 1940's. I couldn't believe what I was looking at! Don't know if the head shell was plastic or not? They had plastic in those days. Maybe Gutta-percha(hard rubber)don't know?

I would suggest an Eb Generation, old style lead block type whistle. Shiny nickel plated, obviously! I happen to be total sh!te at figuring out the notes, but, on a lark I dug out the old Eb Generation and tried the first couple notes anyway. The tone and "feel" of that size whistle seem to jive. And I do believe the first few notes of the whistle part are (high) d-e-f-g. (Could be all wrong, but that's my guess anyway!)

I'd actually be truly grateful if some kind soul hereabouts would write out the dots. (Can't find anything with a quick websearch as of yet.) It's a terribly catchy little tune!

The first few notes are c _e f g2 and the key of tune is Ab.
So you are correct in picking up your Eb whistle.

This tune is a faster played version of the "how little we know" which was played earlier in this movie.
You can find the dots of the latter with web-search.
