While you were posting these, I came across another Lee Tracy picture from The Front Page in one of the books I bought on 11 May (and mentioned the next day). Turns out, Tracy's co-star, Frances Fuller, was the future wife of the author/interviewee (Worthington Miner, who was assistant to the play's producer, Jed Harris). Miner also describes the opening night madness involving Tracy and a curtain that didn't come down quite as planned.

I remember that post. The book sounded like a good read, so I went and ordered a used copy from Amazon.
