Lowest Rated: 75% Doctor X (1932)

Birthday: Apr 14, 1898

Birthplace: Not Available

Dynamic actor from the Broadway stage who entered film in 1929 and parlayed his success as the antic, fast-talking Hildy Johnson in the 1930 theatrical production of "The Front Page" into a number of screen roles as a hyperactive reporter. Noted for his staccato, nasal delivery, Tracy played a host of commanding leads and supporting roles through the 1940s and won an Oscar nomination for his performance in the 1964 drama, "The Best Man." He also starred in the TV series "Martin Kane--Private Eye" (1952-53) and, again as a reporter, on "New York Confidential" (1958-59).

QUOTES FROM Lee Tracy CHARACTERS

Max Kane says: "Oh, no. l'm just telling you the truth... You know, you never were an actor. You did have looks, but they're gone now. You don't have to take my word for it. Just look in any mirror. They don't lie. Take a good look. Look at those pouches under your eyes. Look at those creases. You sag like an old woman! Get a load of yourself! Wait till you start tramping around the offices, looking for a job, because no agent's going to handle you. Sitting in those anterooms hour after hour, giving your name to office boys that never even heard of you. You're through, Renault! You're through in pictures and plays and vaudeville and radio and everything. You're a corpse, and you don't know it. Go get yourself buried!
