Killer Stark and his five vicious sons launch a crime spree so extensive that our county’s greatest G-man, Dick Tracy, is called back into action!! Here are all the thrills and action you would expect from the cliffhanger serials originally produced by Republic Pictures!! Blazing tommy guns, hair-raising dangers, and last-second escapes!! Back as Tracy is RALPH BYRD, square-jawed champion of law and order. This time he’s up against one of the screen’s all-time great villains, CHARLES MIDDLETON (Ming the Merciless in FLASH GORDON ) as the cruel and cunning Pa Stark. Pretty LYNNE ROBERTS is on hand at G-man headquarters and she’s plenty easy on the eyes. DAVID SHARPE plays a young government agent ruthlessly slain by the Stark gang. His death hits Tracy personally and he rededicates his efforts to eliminating this band of killers. Guiding Tracy through 15 episodes is the top team of serial directors WILLIAM WITNEY and JOHN ENGLISH. This 2-disc set provides nearly four hours of fast & furious action!! Based on the comic strip created by Chester Gould. This is a region-free, all-ages DVD movie (shot in black & white) in NTSC format, recorder on DVD-R discs. It should run on any standard DVD player, and runs 300 minutes.
