Star of the Month Spencer Tracy

Now that we've finished up September, there's a new Star of the Month for October on TCM, that being Spencer Tracy. Every Monday night in October, TCM will be putting the spotlight on Tracy's career. In fact, they've got enough movies that the movies will go well into Tuesday morning. Tracy started his career at Fox before moving to MGM, and it is with the early part of Tracy's career that MGM begins this salute to Tracy.

Well, actually, they're beginning it a bit earlier, at 6:30 PM tonight, with The Spencer Tracy Legacy, a documentary from the late 1980s hosted by Katharine Hepburn. I've already blogged about three of the Fox films that are on tonight's schedule, starting with Me and My Gal at 8:00 PM.

The second on, A Man's Castle at 9:30 PM, is one that really sounds as though I saw it on the Fox Movie Channel at some point years ago, but I'm not certain. I do know, however, that I blogged about the two following films: The Power and the Glory at 11:00 PM got a post back in May of 2008.

The last of the Fox films is Dante's Inferno, airing at 12:30 AM. The bad news is, none of these Fox films seems to be available on DVD. The only one of the night's films that does seem to have a DVD release is 20,000 Years in Sing Sing, which you can catch at 2:00 AM.
