Cat. #005241212: SPENCER TRACY

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Rare and uncommonly early inscribed black fountain pen signature on a 4x6-inch tan autograph album page, acquired in-person in the 1930s, at the onset of his movie career. In good condition for its age, with an inscribed black fountain pen signature of Dracula (1931) actress Dorothy Tree on the verso, which shows a touch of brushing to the ink. Endearingly human leading man Spencer Tracy won back-to-back Oscars for Boys Town (1937) and Captains Courageous (1938), and was nominated a whopping seven other times, for San Francisco (1936), Father of the Bride (1950), Bad Day at Black Rock (1955), The Old Man and the Sea (1958), Inherit the Wind (1960), Judgment at Nuremberg (1961), and Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? (1967). He was elsewhere memorable in 20,000 Years in Sing Sing (1932), the horror flicks Dante's Inferno (1935) and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941), Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo (1944), Adam's Rib (1949), and It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963).
