It’s been 30 years since Dick Tracy hit the big screen, introducing a new generation to the exploits of the yellow coated-detective and his rogue’s gallery of truly disturbing looking villains. The film starred Warren Beatty, Madonna, and Al Pacino, and remains one of the most visually striking comic adaptations ever created.
While it might not have been a massive box office success that spawned the franchise many had hoped for, Dick Tracy is an important movie and one that’s worth revisiting. Whether it’s the hand-painted city backdrops that create Tracy’s fictional setting, the perfectly over-the-top performances from practically everyone involved, or the simple yet wonderfully executed story of a cop trying to take down the mob, there’s plenty to love about Dick Tracy.
To celebrate the film’s 30th anniversary, we jumped in a time machine to revisit it and learn all we could about it. While what happened on screen was exciting and colorful, what happened behind-the-scenes is just as fascinating, if not more. So throw on your yellow trench coat, grab a fedora, and join us as we take a look at the 22 most intriguing Easter eggs, secrets, behind-the-scenes stories, and more from Dick Tracy. And while you’re at it, get ready to hear about one of the most ridiculous theme park ride concepts of all time.
