Happy Birthday, Dick Tracy

Just a quickie here. Today’s the 75th birthday of comics sleuth Dick Tracy. Cartoonist Chester Gould launched the strip October 4, 1931. He drew the strip until 1977.

Sadly, he couldn’t imagine his creation would come to life in a terrible movie starring Warren Beatty and Madonna. Blecch. Dustin Hoffman, Al Pacino, etc.–it should have been fantastic.
