Description
Regarded throughout Hollywood as an "actor's actor," Spencer Tracy always commanded the screen with his utterly natural, believable characterizations, no matter what the role or type of film. Tracy twice won the Academy Award for best actor, and is tied with Laurence Olivier with nine nominations. In this Emmy-winning, 1986 tribute to her frequent co-star and longtime love, Katharine Hepburn hosts a behind-the-scenes look at Tracy's personal and professional life, with intimate personal accounts, interviews, and clips from his stellar work in a panoply of films ranging from 1936's San Francisco with Clark Gable to 1967's Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? with Hepburn and Sidney Poitier.

"An unusually intimate glimpse into what is bound to be one of Hollywood's more enduring legends."—NYTimes

"Though they were engaged in one of Hollywood's most celebrated romances, they never discussed it publicly. Tracy, a Catholic, was unwilling to divorce his wife, Louise Treadwell Tracy, whom he had married in 1923. Louise Tracy gained prominence for her work with deaf children and her founding of the John Tracy Clinic, named for their deaf son. The actor was a strong supporter and admirer of his wife's work. When he fell ill in the early '60s, Hepburn took five years off from acting to take care of him."—USA Today
