Dick Tracy Detective
Length: 61 Minutes
Dick Tracy is one of the most successful serial detectives in American pop culture history. Here in Dick Tracy, Detective, the gumshoe with the two-way wristwatch is wonderfully portrayed by Morgan Conway in an incredibly entertaining film adaptation. Shot in a style evocative of dark and sinful 40s film noir, the picture brings to life the highly stylized world invented by cartoonist Chester Gould. The overly ugly caricature villains, classically modeled love interest, and hard boiled mystery is all here. Fortunately, the casting is superb and the direction deft, making the translation onto the silver screen seamless. Dick Tracy, Detective is a splendiferous ride through dark and exciting mystery.
