I like "The Rocketeer" as well and have copies of the last three films that I mentioned.
Dick Tracy is actually the only film, other than A League of Their Own, that I like Madonna in.
It actually had a pretty big all star cast looking back.
The Phantom was fun, but it was nothing compared to Rocketeer, The Shadow, and Dick Tracy. Rocketeer trumps them all though.
