Dick Tracy Detective (1945)

Dick Tracy made four feature films at Radio Pictures. Dick Tracy (this film) was followed by Dick Tracy vs. Cueball in 1946, both with Morgan Conway as Tracy. Ralph Byrd returned for the last two features, both released in 1947: Dick Tracy’s Dilemma and Dick Tracy Meets Gruesome. Gruesome is probably the best known of the four, with the villain portrayed by Boris Karloff.

  1. Kevin, I enjoy these old movies! Thanks for operating Retrovision for all of us! Besides watching Netflix and shows on You Tube and Network websites I find Retrovision very refreshing. I can not receive TV over the air at my house because of a hill next behind my house. So it’s watching over the Internet, DVD or VHS for me. Thanks! Larry in Benton City, WA.

    • I would bet you a buck one of these choices would work and get you broadcast TV. Digital TV makes long distance trips much better than analog.


      I looked up Renton on antennaweb. It looks to me like EXTREMEtenna 80 with a pre-amp would be more than good enough.

      I use an antenna myself. Before digital, that was terrible with double images from the hills around here. Digital is sweet.

      One thing about digital. When these things were analog, I’d get ghosting double images because of the terrain. Digital doesn’t do that.

  2. I was wondering if you could add The Smiling Ghost, The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer, and That Darn Cat with Haley Mills
