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.
Also called Mark of the Claw in the United Kingdom, Dick Tracy’s Dilemma is about police detective Dick Tracy investigating fur thefts. He soon finds out that the thief has a hook for a hand and calls himself The Claw.
Diamonds are stolen. Before the thief can safely hide them he is strangled by ex-conman Cueball (Dick Wessel). Cueball takes the diamonds and continues on murdering people that he believes are trying to double-cross him. Dick Tracy (Morgan Conway) allows his girlfriend Tess to act as a buyer for the diamonds but what happens when Cueball vows to eliminate Dick Tracy?

I wrote an Android app that has most of the public domain library here. It’s more than 600 movies and TV shows and you can play it on your Android tablet. You’ll need Android 4.1 or later, but other than that it should work on phones or whatever.
A painter friend of mine, who became a little famous for his paintings, once told me “I’ll paint you a picture, I’ll paint your house, I’ll paint your car”. He was indeed a painter. This is the way I feel about Leonard Nimoy. Star Trek was usually on at 4 after I got home from school. I’m sure I know all the episodes by heart. Just to show you how not seriously Leonard Nimoy took himself, even in fame, he did things like this: It’s nice that Nimoy got to make his living being an actor. Invasion of the Body…
