Dick Tracy - 4 classic movies

After the Dick Tracy serials of the late 30’s and early 40’s, Dick Tracy was brought back to his city detective roots in four films produced by RKO Radio Pictures between 1945 and 1947. Each film focused a Dick Tracy case not found in the daily comic strip. The first two movies starred Morgan Conway while the latter two brought back Ralph Byrd who had starred in the earlier serials. Byrd would go on to star in a Dick Tracy television show in the early 1950′s after which Tracy would vanish from live action film until Warren Beatty’s 1990 movie, Dick Tracy.
