Whelan's career began with his screenplays being featured in comedy films such as "Safety Last" (1923) starring Harold Lloyd, "The Freshman" (1925) with Harold Lloyd and Jobyna Ralston and "Exit Smiling" (1926) with Beatrice Lillie and Jack Pickford. He also appeared in "Tramp, Tramp, Tramp" (1926) with Harry Langdon and "Hook, Line and Sinker" (1930). He continued to work in film in the thirties, directing motion pictures like "It's a Boy" (1933), the Spencer Tracy crime picture "The Murder Man" (1935) and "Action For Slander" (1937). Nearing the end of his career, Whelan directed "Seven Days Leave" (1942) with Victor Mature, "Twin Beds" (1942) and the adaptation "Higher and Higher" (1943) with Michèle Morgan.
