Quote: “Calling Dick Tracy. Calling Dick Tracy.”
Don’t be fooled by Catchem’s sleepy-eyed, rumpled look. He is Dick Tracy’s trusted right-hand man, and has saved hi boss’s hide on more than one occasion. Loyal, faithful and reliable, he is always ready for action. This ace detective has risked his life and limb repeatedly in police raids and shootouts.
Often found at one end of a 2-way wrist watch radio conversation with Tracy, Sam is the master of the stakeout surveillance. He knows all the tricks of the trade and gets the goods on even the sharpest of mobsters. Dick Tracy is his idol, and he’d do anything for him.
