Shop by the Stars aisle featuring Spencer Tracy (1900-1967) vintage movie cards, still photos, ephemera, and other collectibles. Born in Milwaukee, WI, this screen legend won back-to-back Academy Awards for Best Actor for his performances in Captains Courageous (1937) and Boys Town (1938). Tracy was nominated for the same award an additional seven times for performances in 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 posthumously for his final role in Guess Who's Coming to Dinner (1967), one of nine features Tracy appeared in opposite his on- and off-screen partner Katharine Hepburn. The nine total nominations for Best Actor tie Laurence Olivier for most all-time Oscar nominations in that category. What's left? So much more, including popular titles such as Me and My Gal (1932), The Power and the Glory (1933), Fritz Lang's Fury (1936), Libeled Lady (1936), Boom Town (1940), Edison, the Man (1940), the starring role(s) in Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (1941), Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo (1944), John Ford's The Last Hurrah (1958), and the lead in Stanley Kramer's It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World (1963).
