Play: Dick Tracy Meets Gruesome


The inimitable Boris Karloff guest stars as the titular Gruesome, an escaped prisoner who is planning a daring bank robbery. After discovering a gas some scientists have discovered that will temporarily paralyze a person, Gruesome plots to use this as a means to carry out his robbery and make his escape without any witnesses. The robbers carry out a daring daylight bank robbery and use the gas to paralyze all the bank's employees and customers. Unfortunately for them, one of the bank customers is Tess Truehart (Anne Gwynne), Dick Tracy's girlfriend, and she is unaffected by the gas. Truehart is able to telephone Dick Tracy (Ralph Byrd) for help and the investigation gets underway to track down the culprits.
