The Spencer Tracy Legacy: A Tribute by Katharine Hepburn

Spencer Tracy embodied the qualities of an everyman and his folksy characteristics made him more immediate than a starry eyed idealist like Jimmy Stewart and Henry Fonda. In a career spanning nearly 40 years and garnishing two Academy Awards, Tracy contributed a number of wide ranging and powerful performances in films such as "Captains Courageous", "Bad Day at Black Rock", "Inherit the Wind", and "Judgement at Nuremberg." In this loving retrospective of his work, kindred spirit and longtime collaborator Katharine Hepburn takes us through his remarkable career with the likes of Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Angela Lansbury, Lee Marvin, and Sidney Poitier making appearances to pay tribute to the screen legend.
