Chester Gould created the cartoon strip 'Dick Tracy' in 1931 for the Detroit Mirror, writing and drawing it up until his death in 1985, although other artists contributed when Gould's ill-health prevented him working. This episode features the blind inventor of such gadgets as the 2-Way Wrist Radio and the TV burglar alarm, Brilliant. Gould and his strip have been criticised for being too Right-wing.
