Looking Good for 107
28 July 2012 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This thirty minute short documentary has old movies expert Leonard Maltin narrating the - largely movie -- history of Chester Gould's square-jawed comic hero with an appearance by Warren Beatty wearing his yellow outfit from his turn as the detective. Beatty is very funny when "he" speaks about "himself" and "his" issues with Beatty's version of Tracy -- issues which I had myself when the movie came out.

The real point of this piece is to show the great affection that Warren Beatty has for the character of Dick Tracy and the manner in which he plays Dick in the interview shows it. The quiet good humor plays very well and I think you will enjoy it.
