Lee Tracy on the brain! What a great post - nice to see such an old article in full. I like the last pic where Tracy manages to take up the whole stage with arms stretched. I won't forget, if I come across Private Jones you'll be the first one to know.

Thanks!
Im on a Lee Tracy kick. Its kinda too bad he didnt get to do the `31 film version of The Front Page. That pic reveals his acting style was perfectly suited for the stage....the whole stage. Im also on the lookout for Night Mayor and Big Time.
