From the look of these lobby cards (and half sheet) from the first Dick Tracy feature, you'd think the star of the film was Mike Mazurki. Maybe he was. I invite you to see for yourself. Technically, though, top billing went to Morgan Conway in the title role. Conway played Tracy once more, in Dick Tracy vs. Cueball, before surrendering to Ralph Byrd, who had portrayed him in four earlier serials. (I posted some posters from the first serial - also titled Dick Tracy - HERE.)
