When Cherry Yates (Lois Hall) finds her appartment broken into and
nothing stolen, just her upholstery ripped up, this makes Dick Tracy
(Ralph Byrd) suspicious, and he soon links the crime to Shaky (Dabbs
Greer), a criminal who had his headquarters in Cherry's appartment
building before his prison spell, and who now tries to track down a
treasure map leading to his loot. Trailing Chaky to Bradford's (Stephen
Carr) upholstery company gets Dick Tracy himself into captivity, since
Shaky doesn't like to be trailed, but of course, Tracy is able to free
himself just in time to apprehend Shaky and Bradford, who are in a fight
over Shaky's loot ... when in comes Cherry, holding everybody at gunpoint
and claiming the loot to be hers because it was her dead husband who hid
it. However, a shoot-out ensues, and of course, justice and order wins out
at the end ...
Nothing special, but a well-acted TV crime drama
with enough nice plottwists to keep one interested throughout.
