Dick Tracy Wiki


The man known as Palm Bucker was an associate of the criminal Haf-and-Haf. Bucker had light wavy hair, an upturned nose, and prominent lips.

Bucker had worked as a fortune teller in the Circling Bros. Circus at the same time that Haf-and-Haf had been a part of sideshow. Years later, Bucker had left the circus and was reading fortunes in a small storefront.

Bucker was approached by the fugitive Haf-and-Haf, who wanted Bucker to pose as a judge so that Haf-and-Haf could convince the blind widow Kora Steel that he was marrying her. Bucker agreed.

The "ceremony" was interrupted by Dick Tracy and the police, who had been tracking Haf-and-Haf for several crimes. Tracy recognized Bucker and removed his disguise.

It was not clear if Bucker would face charges for aiding Haf-and-Haf.
