Trivia

Through the 1950s ABC was an also-ran network which, out of necessity, aired low-budget programs. "Dick Tracy" was popular with kids, but star Ralph Byrd's fatal heart attack in August 1952 precluded the series' continuation. See more »

Not what I remembered
23 July 2000 | by TC-4See all my reviews

I am very familiar with the 4 top quality Dick Tracy movie serials from 1937 to 1941. I have them all on tape and watch them occasionally. It is too bad that not all serials were that good. Now we come to the tv show of the same name made in 1951. I remember seeing it on tv when I was a small child when it was first on. I thought that they were okay. However I have bought some copies of the show and cannot believe how awful they were. Ralph Byrd lowered himself to cheap sets and just have conversation with his men. I have never seen anything of lower budget than this. I guess that filmed tv shows of the early fifties had a long way to go before any kind of quality came in.
