Little Face is a character in Dick Tracy. He was one of Lips Manlis’ thugs who was killed at the 7th Street Garage by Flattop at the beginning of the film. His face was only shown in extreme close-up, and his body was only shown from behind. He was played by Lawrence Steven Meyers.

Max Allan Collins' novelization of the film expands slightly on Little Face's role. Little Face came to prominence working under Lips Manlis, and Lips considered him an old friend. Tracy would recall an occasion inspired by the strip: Little Face once tried to evade him by hiding in a freezer, but he nearly lost his ears and hands to frostbite (they ended up heavily scarred).

Despite his friendship with Lips, Little Face agreed to take money from Big Boy in exchange for helping to set up the 7th Street Garage massacre, as well as leaving the door open for Big Boy's gunmen. This proved a fatal mistake for Little Face, as Flattop executed him along with the other four.
