Film biography

In the film adaptation of Live and Let Die, Whisper is an extremely soft-spoken, portly assassin employed by Kananga. The driver of the white pimpmobile, he is seen on a number of occasions throughout the film; when Bond travels to meet Felix Leiter in New York, when he pulls alongside Bond's cab, he kills the driver by using a poison dart gun concealed in the side-mirror of the car.

Later, Whisper unleashes a poisonous snake in Bond's bathroom.

After having captured Bond and Solitaire in his underground base, Kananga takes Bond's gun, asking what it does. Bond replies that it is a shark gun firing compressed gas pallets. For his own amusement, Kananga fires the gun at the sofa Whisper is sitting on, causing it to inflate enormously until it explodes, causing a shocked Whisper to fall to the ground.

After gloating over Bond, Kananga straps him and Solitaire onto a which, planning fto have them eaten by sharks. Whisper then starts lowering the winch into the water and opens a underwater gate, through which sharks enter. With the magnetic device hidden in his clock, Bond obtains the gas pellet Kananga played with before. Bond also uses his clock to free himself from the ropes. Jumping down onto the ground, he runs towards Kananga. Whisper tries to warn his master, but due to his whispering voice Kananga cannot hear him. Bond drops Whisper into one of the air tight metal capsules used to keep the heroin dry and engages Kananga. 

It is unknown what happens to him after Bond defeats Kananga. He was possibly arrested by the CIA. He was also assumed deceased muffled.
