    Re: Dick Tracy

    Dick Tracy is a property that has spanned generations. It was an old comic strip, then a great colorful movie with some great actors. It was a very GOOD film! (and rollercoaster rabbit was awesome too...hey wait aminute... there's a ride concept right there!)


    Dick Tracy still has life in it if Disney was smart. So does Rocketeer. These will be properties that will be remade and reinvented generation after generation because they're GOOD.

    If it were to go anywhere, it'd be a fun attraction in the Hollywood Pictures Backlot.

    Hmmm... kinda sounds like Batman.

    Here's filmfreak's recording of the show:

    It was the first narrative stageplay in Disney's history, and many of its creators then made "Beauty and the Beast", which was the first Broadway production in the company's history.

    When I was a little kid, I thought of a stunt show for the Disney MGM Studios that had the Rocketeer and Dick Tracy inhabiting the same space, along with several other comic-book-style characters that were all from the early 20th Century and who fit better with the 1939 imagery of the Hollywood Boulevard there.

    Wow... this brings me waaaay back. I mean, I don't actually even remember the show. All I remember was meeting Flattop afterwards.

    Watching that show... I'm amazed at how inventive and entertaining it was. With ORIGINAL songs too! Quick paced, told a story, fun music and sets... they don't make them like that anymore!

    "Calling Dick Tracy" was quite a catchy tune

    Wrote them all, including the Oscar-winning "Sooner or Later (I Always Get My Man)."

    Personally, I like the song that was cut from the show in favor of "Sooner or Later" better. You can still find it on some Stephen Sondheim anthology albums, it's called "What Can You Lose?" and it's a lot more wistful and sad, very emotional. I love it.

    This made me wonder, was there ever a Newsies show or parade (segment even)? I always wished there was. Especially since the movie ends with a parade.

    I was thinking the same thing, myself. Scary isn't it?

    Re: Dick Tracy

    "Newsies" was embarrassing for the company when it was released to theatres, but it did go on to become the biggest-selling live-action D.V.D. title in Walt Disney Pictures' history before "Pirates of the Caribbean" supplanted it. So, there was never a Newsies parade on Main Street, U.S.A., although I definitely could have seen something like it happening.

    I'd be in favor of Disney re-editing that film to make it work better and re-releasing it in some way. It has the potential to garner an audience, but the film is virtually unwatchable in its current state.
