Police detective Dick Tracy must identify and apprehend a serial killer known as Splitface.
The scene of Splitface stabbing a victim on the rooftop, although filmed in a long shot, was considered an unusually graphically violent scene for the period. It was apparently passed by the censors.
The angle and curvature of the scar on Splitface's cheek changes from scene to scene.
