Dick Tracy was the highest-grossing film of Warren Beatty's career. As a fan of the comic strip, Beatty wanted to put in as many characters from the comics into the film as he could (this was a measure used by Beatty in case the film didn't have a sequel).
Al Pacino designed Big Boy Caprice's make-up, and completely re-imagined the character, who was originally big and fat in the comics with a little nose. Caprice's resulting film counterpart is of average height with enlarged hands, nose, and cheekbones, hence his street name. Make-up designer John Caglione, Jr. S final design of Big Boy Caprice matches the intended design conceived by Pacino Since then, Caglione, Jr. Became Pacino's personal make-up man in all of his films.Pacino has stated that Madonna flashed him during rehearsals for this movie, opening her coat to reveal that she was naked underneath. Pacino joked that when he is old, if he is observed with a beatific smile on his face, it will be because he is recalling the incident.
