DICK TRACYSpawned from the comic strip sketched by Chester Gould, Dick Tracy first became a radio program in 1935, moving on two years later to become a movie serial. Starring in the show were Ralph Byrd as Dick Tracy, Joe Devlin as Sam Catchem, Tracy's colleague, and Angela Greene as Tess Trueheart, the detective's wife. In 1990, Dick Tracy was made into a film featuring Warren Beatty and Madonna.FEATURING 3 EPISODESDick Tracy's Dilemma (aka Mark Of The Claw)Dick Tracy Meets GruesomeDick Tracy vs. CueballDRAGNETThe popular TV series, Dragnet, was a forerunner of near-authentic police dramas, and for this reason, it was one of the most triumphant television series in its class. Television, since its introduction, had been saturated with comedy shows and vaudeville acts, deviating very little from the norm. Therefore, Dragnet was a refreshing change and the reality-based action series served as an archetype for subsequent police shows, drawing upon genuine cases from the LosAngeles police department. The action/drama also paralleled actual police work by including unsolved cases and dead-end leads in the show. On top of that, it depicted the officers as real people with private lives, reminding the audience of the unpleasant aspects of the joblike being constantly interrupted even while off duty. The show was so well received that many of the sentiments spoken by characters became oft-repeated phrases by the public, such as actor Jack Webb's, "Just the facts ma'am" and "Myname's FridayI'm a cop," as Detective Joe Friday. The only thing that is perhaps even more recognizable than the show's lines is the theme songwhich is easily recognized the world over.FEATURING 7 EPISODESBig CrimeBig PairBig Produc
