Dick Tracy

Cinema Studies lecture from Jeff Hughes

Hard-boiled detective Dick Tracy (Warren Beatty) is searching for evidence that proves Alphonse “Big Boy” Caprice is the city’s most dangerous crime boss. He may have found the key to unraveling the crimelord’s illegal empire in Breathless Mahoney (Madonna), an enigmatic barroom singer who has witnessed some of Caprice’s crimes firsthand. However, she seems more set on stealing Dick away from his girlfriend, Tess (Glenne Headly), than helping him solve the case of his career.

Dick Tracy will be accompanied by a lecture from Jeff Hughes, graduate of the Martin Scorsese Department of Cinema Studies at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts

"Dick Tracy is a class act: simple, stylish, sophisticated, sweet."
David Ansen, Newsweek
