A nice try amid the sixties' camp
19 March 1999 | by Vigilante-407See all my reviews

This version of the classic Chester Gould comic strip didn't make it past the pilot, but it is truer to the source material than any other adaptation (except for the Warren Beatty movie flop).

It's only problem that it was made in the style and verve of the campy 1960's Batman TV show (in fact it was handled by the same producers). Like Adam West, Ray MacDonnell is almost too earnest in his portrayal of the ace detective. Dick Tracy is a fairly one-dimensional character, but there's no need to accentuate this fact.

Victor Buono is the highlight of the pilot, playing Mr. Memory with his standard hammy glee that makes him so much fun to watch. Eve Plumb (the future Jan Brady) makes a cameo appearance in the opening credits as Dick's daughter Bonnie Braids, but is never seen in the actual show.
