Brief Synopsis:
A version of 'Dick Tracy' that's a little tighter, with more consistent characterization for Dick and Tess.
I love this movie, but it just drags and I wasn't happy that Breathless managed to get under Dick's skin or that Tess was bothered by some two-bit floozy. So, I had a few goals:
1. Tracy should not be moved by Breathless Mahoney's advances. He can be flustered by them. But not moved. Tracy is a man of honor and integrity, and he's with Tess.
2. Tess shouldn't try to "tie" Tracy down. She respects herself, and him, too much for that. And, she shouldn't be worried about Breathless. Tess is a confident woman, that doesn't get bent out of shape just because some floozy wants her man. He's her man. And she knows that.
3. Tighten the pacing. Where possible, cut shots / scenes that are repetitive, or just aren't needed, so that this thing can move a bit faster.

Excellent edit. Radically improves the pacing to what should have been a classic. Well done.
