Movie Info

Ralph Byrd returns to the character he had originated ten years earlier in the serial Dick Tracy. This time, Chester Gould's immortal comic strip hero is called in to handle a fur theft. The owner of Flawless Furs, Humphreys (Charles Marsh), has just signed on with the Honesty Insurance Company whose investigator, Cudd (Al Bridge), made him change the combination to the vault. The insurance policy --as the head of Honesty, Peter Premium (William B. Davidson), explains -- holds the company liable

Grade B comic book-based thriller, one of Tracy series.

My dilemma is that I recall liking the comic strip as a kid yet am less than thrilled with this flat and at times unbearably grating detective story programmer.

The problem here is that the exposition is stale stuff.

Audience Reviews for Dick Tracy's Dilemma

Tracy is on the case of stolen furs, not that we care about stolen furs, but at least the criminals are interesting. This is a pretty exciting movie, but it could be better.
