James Curtis “Spencer Tracy: A Biography”
December 16th, 2011
Decades after his death, Spencer Tracy remains one of the most towering figures in American movie history. Clark Gable once quipped that “there’s nobody in this business who can touch him.”
Now veteran biographer James Curtis goes deeper and wider than anyone before him in telling the story of the Catholic boy from Milwaukee who became an American film icon.
Drawing heavily upon the unique access Tracy’s daughter gave him to her dad’s personal papers and journals, Curtis reconstructs the life of the man who always made it look so easy. Curtis calls his book “Spencer Tracy: A Biography.”
