Since Sam Raimi has his hands on The Shadow now, maybe it's time for him to get his hands on Dick Tracy and do the movie good.
Last I heard, Warren Beatty still holds the rights. And as with The Rocketeer, that time has probably passed. We might have to wait until 20 or 30 years later for another set of hands to give it another try.
I have always loved this movie and would watch it everytime it came on television when I was a kid. Love the score as well. :]

I love The Rocketeer too. I bought the DVD on a whim after not having seen the film in years. I watch it all the time. It is a particular favorite amongst my friends too. We would play it a lot during long nights in studio working on school projects.
Rocketeer is one of my favorite comics. It is a close second to Nexus. If you've not read the comic it is based on, you are cheating yourself. They put them all into a graphic novel that is a great read. And the art by Dave Stevens is the best. He does the 1940's cheesecake style perfectly.
