References to Freemasonry in popular culture range from the vitriolic to the innocuous. Far more often they are merely misinformed allusions from which Freemasonry faces a far more insidious threat; that of being marginalized, trivialized, and fictionalized. Most of the references noted on this site are harmless, simply pointing out that Freemasonry has played a role in our society; some are humorous, yet some are disturbing in their associations.

[Flattop]
Dick Tracy
Detectives Dick Tracy and Sam Catchem visit the home of Flattop’s sister where Sam sees a picture of a family ancestor who was president of Grand Lodge. The uniform is that of a naval officer, and not masonic regalia. What Grand Lodge Gould was referring to is unclear and no further mention is made to the portrait.
