Anne Jeffreys



    Smart, blonde, and absolutely stunning, Anne Jeffreys' portrayal of the Tess Trueheart character from the classic "Dick Tracy" comic strip is by far and away the best of any actress that has ever assumed the role.  Tess is witty and brave, but she knows her limitations.  After all, Dick Tracy is the experienced police detective, but when she's in trouble she's no slouch and always does her best to get out of a bad situation.  What I like about Tess is that she's more like a real woman would be in distress.  She's not helpless, but she doesn't try to attack the guy with the gun or knife either.  Tess is also supportive of her boyfriend Dick Tracy and his work.  She doesn't chastize him about being a cop or start pointless arguments.  Tess Trueheart really stands by her man!
