Pa Stark (Charles Middleton, Ming the Merciless of FLASH GORDON fame) and his five criminal sons are holding America in a grip of terror. It is up to Dick Tracy and his G-Men to bring the ruthless Starks to justice in a thrill-packed chapter play. Fast-paced, non-stop action is the hallmark of Witney and English, who from 1937 to 1941 directed for Republic Pictures some serials that are generally regarded as the finest ever to come out of Hollywood. DICK TRACY RETURNS belongs to that select group of super serials, and it is pure gold for thrill lovers. 15 Chapters.
