Available today on Blu-ray, DICK TRACY is the ultra-colorful 1990 live-action, big-screen adaptation of CHESTER GOULD’S classic comic strip of the same name. Focused on a highly intelligent, hard-hitting police detective and his exploits with some imaginative crooks (as well as a couple of on-again/off-again affairs of the heart), the film wasn’t originally met with the kind of appreciation that it’s managed to acquire with age. Starring (as well as produced and directed by) WARREN BEATTY, the cast also includes such heavy-weights as MADONNA, AL PACINO, DUSTIN HOFFMAN, CHARLES DURNING, DICK VAN DYKE, GLENNE HEADLY and PAUL SORVINO.
We spoke with WARREN BEATTY at the opulent international junket held at Walt Disney World for the original theatrical release of the film and he offered up his theory on the ongoing popularity of the character of DICK TRACY. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
