Spencer Tracy's image on-screen was that of a self-reliant man whose sense of rectitude toward others was matched by his sense of humor toward himself. Whether he was Father Flanagan of Boys Town, Clarence Darrow of Inherit the Wind, or the crippled war veteran in Bad Day at Black Rock, Tracy was forever seen as a pillar of strength, the sort of regular American guy one could depend on. Now biographer James Curtis gives us the life of this revered actor. Curtis writes of Tracy's distinguished career, his deep Catholicism, his devoted relationship to his wife, his drinking that got him into so much trouble, and his twenty-six-year-long bond with his partner on-screen and off, Katharine Hepburn. Drawing on Tracy's personal papers and writing with the full cooperation of Tracy's daughter, Curtis tells the rich story of the brilliant but haunted man at the heart of the legend.--From publisher description.… (mais)

A meticulous well researched bio of actor Spencer Tracy. At over 1,000 pages including the listing of film and stage works, bibliography, and index, each chapter left you wanting to go on and read the next right away. Author James Curtis has the cooperation of Tracy’s daughter Susie and had access to the journals Tracy wrote for his adult life as well as recollections of family members. The author spent a chapter pointing out the errors in some previously written books on Tracy as well as books on Hepburn. While Tracy seemed to be a tortured man, his screen presence is one of the most natural in the history of cinema. You feel like he is really listening to the opposing actor and saying the words for the first time. Tracy’s main advice to those who asked him how to act was to never be “caught acting”. However, as you can see from this book, he spent many, many hours while filming a role, to study lines and get the character just right. The book also contains many interviews with his wife, Louise, and describes her work with the John Tracy Clinic. I would have liked more interviews with his children as well as something at the end to let us know what his children (although I understand son John has passed away) and grandchildren are doing. ( )
