A maniac is on the loose, viciously slashing his victims and leaving them to die on desolate streets.

Time is running out for detective Dick Tracy when the mayor is targeted as the killer's next mark. As he begins to piece the scraps of evidence into a solid case, Tracy's girlfriend is taken prisoner by Splitface at his riverboat hideout.

Dick Tracy Meets Gruesome
Starring: Boris Karloff & Ralph Byrd Director: John Rawlins
Boris Karloff squares off with Ralph Byrd (as the famous comic strip gumshoe Dick Tracy) in this tongue-in-cheek action packed crime story.

The world's most beloved comic-strip detective is vividly brought to life by Ralph Byrd in this brutal crime caper that's guaranteed to satisfy viewers with an appetite for action-packed adventure. The film gets off to a rollicking start at The Hangman's Knot, a gritty dive with an ominous neon-lit noose blinking in the bar's window, where the terrifying Gruesome (Boris Karloff) has just arrived, fresh from being sprung from the slammer. A crony informs him of a new scheme in the works that involves the use of a paralyzing gas to pull off flawless robberies. Sure enough, the evil Gruesome and his gang hold up a bank, freezing everyone inside (except Dick Tracy's gal, Tess Truehart) with the poisonous substance. It appears as though the invincible Tracy has met his match, so much so that his faithful right-hand man, Pat Patton (Lyle Latell), quips, "If I didn't know better, I'd swear we were doing business with Boris Karloff"! Undaunted, Tracy devises a clever plan to beat Gruesome at his own sinister game. Dick Tracy Meets Gruesome was the fourth and final feature about Chester Gould's larger-than-life gumshoe, a series that began in 1945 with
Dick Tracy and continued with Dick Tracy vs. Cueball (1946) and Dick Tracy's Dilemma (1947).

Dick Tracy's Dilemma
Starring: Ralph Byrd Director: John Rawlins
Famed comic strip detective Dick Tracy fights the hook-handed psycho, "The Claw," in this action-packed crime tale.

Dick Tracy (Ralph Byrd) is back on the case in this hard-boiled caper featuring a comic-strip lineup of oddball characters. Summoned to the scene of a robbery and grisly double homicide, Tracy's investigation leads him to the psychopathic maniac, The Claw (Jack Lambert), who with the aid of a deadly hook-hand is able to terrorize the entire city. Ralph Byrd, who made such a memorable impression as Dick Tracy in Republic Pictures' serials, returns in the title role in RKO's third feature about Chester Gould's famous gumshoe. Dick Tracy's Dilemma successfully realizes the noir-filtered-through-surrealism quality of Gould's strip, not only with the infernal Claw but also with such outrageous, over-the-top denizens as the snitch Sightless, Longshot Lillie, and Vitamin.
