Dick Tracy meets Gruesome 1947


John Rawlins | Crime , Action , Drama

The last movie in Dick Tracy's film series, based on the comic strip character created by Chester Gould. It is another great 1940s crime B-film, while not extraordinary, still more remarkable than other low budget B-film noirs of its time. In this movie, probably the best of the four, Dick Tracy has to confront a villain using a nerve gas to rob banks. Boris Karloff is extremely creepy and charismatic as the main villain.

Cast: Boris Karloff, Ralph Byrd, Anne Gwynne.
