Abstract:

Humphrey Bogart considered Spencer Tracy to be Hollywood's best actor. "He makes you believe he is what he is playing," Bogey once said. Katharine Hepburn, Tracy's beloved companion of 25 years, compares him to "a baked potato, It's pure. It's of the earth. And it's dependable. That was Spencer." Hepburn hosts this salute featuring clips from Captains courageous, Bad day at Black Rock, Adam's rib and other Tracy hits alongside reminiscences from Frank Sinatra, Sidney Poitier, Elizabeth Taylor and more stars. This program follows Tracy's stellar career from brash young man blazing with talent to old lion showing new stars how it's done.
