Based on the famous cartoon strip by Chester Gould. This was the initial entry of the Dick Tracy serials from Republic Pictures in 1937. In this super thriller, a clubfooted criminal known only as the Lame One masterminds a war on G-men. One of his villainous plans is to destroy the new Bay Bridge (which looks suspiciously like the Golden Gate) by bombarding it with high-frequency sound waves from his stratospheric aircraft, “The Wing”. In the meantime, Dick Tracy’s brother is kidnapped and forced to aid the notorious Lame One, who turns out to be…?
This serial features fistfights, car chases and aerial stunts as only Republic Pictures could stage them. For lovers of serial thrills and action, Dick Tracy really delivers the goods.
