Dick Tracy Wiki

Lawrence "Acey-Deucey" Doucet is a character specifically created for the 1990 Dick Tracy film. He is referred to by name in Max Allan Collins' novelization of the film.

Appearance and role[]

Doucet is described as "a razor-thin blond" who had taken control of gambling in the suburbs. He was present at the meeting held by Big Boy and uttered his thoughts to Spaldoni about controlling the food market with "pretzels". He later submitted to Big Boy's control.

Acey-Deucey was presumably either arrested during Dick Tracy's dismantling of Big Boy's criminal empire or killed or arrested during the New Year's Eve shootout.


  • Ace
    An unnamed character in a blue suit and yellow hat can be seen standing behind Pruneface at Big Boy's "summit". This man is holding a deck of playing cards which he shuffles with one hand, exposing first an ace and then a 2 (aka the "deuce"). It is reasonable to deduce that that this person is Acey-Deucey, but he does not match the physical description in the novelization.
