By means of murder, the Mole (Raymond Hatton) - who resides in the basement of a restaurant he runs for cover - has gotten his hands on the best printing plates and now plans to start a counterfeiting outfit. However, Dick Tracy (Ralph Byrd) is already hot on his heels, soon shows up at the restaurant and demands to talk to the manager. Tracy has no idea though what the Mole looks like, so the Mole lets one of his henchmen (James Magill) impersonate him - and it was a good idea, too, since the henchman is soon shot dead by Tracy and his sidekick Sam Catchem (Joe Devlin).

It doesn't take Tracy long though to figure the dead henchman has not been the Mole himself, so he shows up in his restaurant once more - only to be drugged, tied up and left at the mercy of the Mole's henchmen (FRank HAgney, Jack Clifford). But of course, Tracy can not only free himself and overcome the thugs, he also manages to alarm the police via morsecode. And in the end, the Mole's henchmen are apprehended, the Mole though manages to escape ...

 

There might be a third part to this story somewhere, as it lacks a proper conclusion, but unfortunately, information on the series as such are at best sketchy. Anyways, even in its incomplete form, The Mole is a rather well-done early TV crime drama, cheaply done perhaps, but well scripted, well cast and well acted.
