?Surveys the full range of Tracy's expansive career, from his early appearances on the college stage through his Oscar-nominated work in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner. The primary listings alone would make this a welcome addition to all film collections, but Fisher's extra effort in providing detailed information on this great actor's complete work is commendable. Film and theater buffs will find this commentary an excellent companion to standard film guides, and fans of Tracy will definitely want this volume. Recommended for all public and academic film collections.?-Choice
