26 Stunning Photos of Madonna During the Filming ‘Dick Tracy’ (1990)

Dick Tracy is a 1990 American action crime comedy film based on the 1930s comic strip character of the same name created by Chester Gould. Warren Beatty produced, directed, and starred in the film, whose supporting cast includes Al Pacino, Madonna, Glenne Headly, and Charlie Korsmo.

Dick Tracy depicts the detective’s romantic relationships with Breathless Mahoney and Tess Trueheart as well as his conflicts with crime boss Alphonse “Big Boy” Caprice and his henchmen. Tracy also begins fostering a young street urchin named Kid.

Development of the film began in the early 1980s with Tom Mankiewicz assigned to write the script. The screenplay was written instead by Jim Cash and Jack Epps Jr., both of Top Gun fame. The project also went through directors Steven Spielberg, John Landis, Walter Hill, and Richard Benjamin before the arrival of Beatty. It was filmed mainly at Universal Studios. Danny Elfman was hired to compose the score, and the film’s music was featured on three separate soundtrack albums.

Dick Tracy premiered at the Uptown Theatre in Washington, D.C., on June 10, 1990 and was released nationwide a day later. Reviews ranged from favorable to mixed, with positive comments on Madonna's acting and Beatty’s direction.

The film was a success at the box office and at awards time. It garnered seven Academy Award nominations, winning in three of the categories: Best Original Song, Best Makeup, and Best Art Direction. Dick Tracy is remembered today for its visual style. Take a look at these stunning photos to see portraits of Madonna during the filming Dick Tracy in 1990.
