In 1990, Madonna starred as nightclub singer Breathless Mahoney in then-boyfriend Warren Beatty's "Dick Tracy." Times film critic Sheila Benson wrote, "Madonna's performance, which in retrospect seems to be songs, salty patter and a collection of artfully struck poses, won't disappoint her fans, but it may not win her new ones--her acting hasn't caught up with her charisma." A year later, Beatty appeared in Madonna's controversial documentary "Madonna: Truth or Dare," which chronicled her Blond Ambition World Tour and debuted at the 1991 Cannes Film Festival. The documentary was shot in black and white except for concert scenes, which were shot in color.
