Dick Tracy - The Movie
In the months leading up to it's June release, comic books were filled with iconic images of Warren Beatty as Dick Tracy. Beatty was also the director of the film and had a definite vision for it. He used a strict seven color palette in order to more closely resemble Dick Tracy's comic book roots. Beatty also cast his then girlfriend Madonna as Breathless Mahoney. How did the film do? Pretty well. It grossed $162 million worldwide after going over-budget at $46 million. Full disclosure...I've never seen it. Maybe it's about time I did.
