"What Tracy offered as characterization was a combination of masculine personality and seemingly total sincerity. In the bulk of his cinema work, he demonstrated an impressive truthfulness of character which appeared steeped in infinite wisdom and compassion for his fellow man. Tracy's acting technique was effortless and without the nervous mannerisms that were the hallmark of so many other individualistic stars. Tracy's one dominant indentifying professional trait was his look of total concentration. He was Daniel in the lion's den; be it surrounded by women, children, or natural disaster, his solidarity quieted down all outside forces."--James Robert Parish ("The MGM Stock Company")

Tracy was also nominated for Oscars 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).
