TCM aired "The Actress" again &....


Recommended Posts

  TCM ended it's "SUTS" day,  honoring Jean Simmons-(l929-2011) with the nicely made (***) 1953 picture  "The Actress" (M-G-M) & it always reminds me that *"The Great: Spencer Tracy"-(l900-l967)


Strangely & ironically won a Best Actor-Drama Golden Globe Award for it-(most, including remaining members of his family, didn't even know this fact? I literally had to show Cyndi T. one day, when we were on the phone together. Going to her own computer & her 1st question was "Well, Where Is It?" unquote)


& yet, didn't snag yet another *Academy (AMPAS) Award nomination for what is arguably his crankiest role.


The official outstanding lead performance by an actor for 1953 were: 


*William Holden in "Stalag 17"-(won)

 Marlon Brando, "Julius Caesar"

 Richard Burton, "The Robe"-(this shoulda' been *Tracy's slot, in my view)

 Montgomery Clift, "From Here to Eternity"

& Burt Lancaster, "From Here to Eternity"
