DICK TRACY VERSUS CUEBALL

Film Noir was a very popular style back in the day that produced some of the most entertaining films ever released. Nowadays you get the Neo-Noir films but during the hey days of Noir films like this were released. How can any one who is a film lover not know about the Classic Dick Tracy films from R.K.O. Pictures, let alone the comic strip. This film came out right in the middle of the golden years of Noir, 1946. Depending on your taste you may not like this but I thought it was one of the most entertaining films to come out of the this period.

A man named Cueball who was just released from prison is hired to steal some diamonds from a man on board a ship. Once there he kills the man and makes his way to those who hired him to do so. But it turns out he is a very non trusting individual as he thinks everyone is out to use him. So he hides along with the diamonds until he thinks he is getting paid what he deserves. But there is a very famous detective out to figure out this murder and is not far behind him and his co conspirators from the start.

This the second Dick Tracy film from R.K.O. has a lot to offer in form of entertainment, it has all the classic styling of a fun B Noir movie. From the classic detective drama story to the hamming it up acting to the down right great style this has it all. Directed by Gordon M. Douglas this fun little flick is just over an hour so the pace moves along at a wonderful pace yet never seems rushed. The style of the black & white film is great along with the performances, including Morgan Conway as Dick Tracy. I have heard people say that his acting here was wooden but I think that made him more fun to be honest, watch and see for your self.

Dick Tracy versus Cueball, 1946 film

The story begins at the docks at night. A ship moves slowly. The gangplank lets the crew aboard. They will unload the cargo. One man leaves them for the passenger cabins, and robs a man. The murder is reported, Dick Tracy is on the job. They visit Jules Sparkle the gem dealer. Was it an inside job? There is a hidden room in the lapidary's house, we learn about the plot. Dick follows Mona Clyde to her rendezvous at the Priceless Antique Shop. Cueball visits "The Dripping Dagger" bar to see Filthy Flora about a room. Dick has an idea. Vitamin Flintheart will visit Priceless' shop. There is a meeting in "The Dripping Dagger", the disagreement is settled by Cueball in his favor. Dick and Pat Patton arrive too late.

The car crash ends in some comic relief. Dickering for diamonds at the Dripping Dagger? Cueball settles with Flora. Little Butch plays "Buffalo Bill", and Dick learns a clue! There is a dragnet for Cueball. Dick Tracy has a plan to find the diamonds and Cueball. He needs a society girl for his plan. It works, Simon Little makes a deal to sell the diamonds. Can Cueball be fooled by a "society girl"? If not will Tess be safe? Can Cueball be caught? A car chase for action. Cueball hides in a railroad yard. [Remember them?] Will he be trapped and have an accident? The diamond mystery is cleared up. Tess has a birthday cake for Dick, the phone is off the hook. But shots are fired, Dick and Pat run off. "Oh no, not again!"

This is an interesting story even if it didn't use the "Dick Tracy" characters. There is more comic relief than the earlier movie. If criminals are not caught during the crime, there is always danger when it comes to splitting up the loot.
