Spencer Tracy on Film: A Biography Spencer Tracy was a man blessed with an incredible gift yet tormented from within. It's almost as if there were two Spencer Tracys. There was the talented, magnanimous Tracy. In his personal life he could be charming, witty and surprisingly generous, and in his chosen profession of acting, he was considered peerless. And then there was the melancholy Tracy, the troubled, complex man who lived an uneasy life. In Laurence Olivier's words, Spencer Tracy was "the greatest living screen actor". This biography explores the man who struggled with life and yet managed to leave us with a treasury of great work.
