Dick Tracy and the Murdering Claw-Man
Dick Tracy, one of the most popular newspaper cartoons of the 1940's once again comes to the big screen, and this time The Claw is the villian stealing furs and killing anyone in his way. Along with Tess Truehart, Vitamin Flintheart and his partner Pat, Dick Tracy discovers the clues to the great fur coat swindle. What does Jigger the bartender have to do with it? And Longshot Lilly, the beautiful criminal fence - will she get involved in this caper?
Our adventure opens with the theft of a safe full of valuable furs, and the gangsters had the combination to the safe. The Claw, a nasty fellow with a hook for a right hand, kills the night watchman, and that homicide gets Tracy involved. When he arrives, just ahead of the owner and the insurance company, the "Honesty Insurance Company," and discovers blood on the floor, and a wide open safe, with no evidence of a break-in.
The gangsters had the combination to the safe! Now who could have given them that? When Dick asks the owner who besides him had the combination, the owner said that he was the only one. But wait, his new insurance company, "Honesty Insurance," required him to change his combination when they wrote the new policy, and they had a safe technician do the job.
Could it have been "Honesty Insurance" that leaked the combination to the gangsters? Hmmm, . . . maybe that's too easy. . . . But who else could it have been? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
