Movie Info

On-the-lam prisoner Gruesome (Boris Karloff) uses toxic gas to pull off a bank heist. Eyewitness to the crime is Tess Truehart (Anne Gwynne), who calls on police Detective Dick Tracy (Ralph Byrd) to investigate. With few leads from the bank's incapacitated customers, and press coverage threatening to create chaos, the crime fighter is in a tough spot. When Tracy learns about the mysterious disappearance of a doctor, however, it may provide the crucial break he needs to solve the crime.

Audience Reviews for Dick Tracy Meets Gruesome (Dick Tracy Meets Karloff)(Dick Tracy's Amazing Adventure)

  • Aug 12, 2018
    There's plenty going on here for fans of RKO type serials, like the punny names of incidental characters, or the constant repartee between the leads (yuck-yuck-yuck-yuck), or the silly comic page situations played seriously, but the real draw here is Karloff's total immersion into his bad guy persona. What villainy will he perpetrate next? He's the reason to see this.
