      Ed Gonzalez Apollo Guide The best thing about the film is the way Berke manages to shape genuinely suspenseful film-noir elements around an otherwise simple yarn. Rated: 65/100 Jul 25, 2001 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Forgettable crime drama. Rated: C+ Nov 13, 2007 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Jun 15, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member An extremely popular movie for its time. It launched the highly successful Dick Tracy movies for RKO. (There were four). Morgan Conway plays Tracy. He's tough, smart and very likable. Anne Jeffries plays an excellent Tess Trueheart. There are a myriad of other suspects..all of them are excellent in their roles. As to who the killer is...it's a good police procedural mystery. I highly enjoyed it! A good family movie! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member So-so. Might've been better if Ralph Byrd had been playing Dick Tracy. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Fun and Exciting little B-Gem--Dick Tracy vs Splitface!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member I own this on DVD in a two movie pack along with: * Dick Tracy's Dilemma (1947) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member A fun B-movie adaptation of the classic mystery/crime comic strip, much more suspenseful then the more famous Warren Beatty movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Noirish adaptation of the famous comic strip. It's nothing great, but it's kind of a fun cartoony noir take on the strip. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
