The biography of Spencer Tracy, one of the most enduring and talented of the golden age movie actors. " Of Spencer Tracy, Lawrence Olivier once said: ' I have learned more about acting from watching Tracy than any other way. He has great truth in everything he does.' Just how close Spencer Tracy was to both Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde -- whom he played in one of his most celebrated films -- has never before now been truthfully discussed. In Spencer Tracy: Tragic Idol, Bill Davidson exposes for the first time being more troubled side of one of Hollywood's most loved and legendary actors." -- from the front fold over blurb.
