movie quotes with a twist game

Retiring the question


1958's The Old Man and the Sea.  During the title character's (Spencer Tracy) ordeal with a marlin that he can not land, he thinks over things in his life, sometimes falling asleep, sometimes growing delirious.  Trips to Africa in his youth figure into his dreams.  In a more wakeful moment, he regrets that he has been unable to keep up with the baseball scores.  Tracy, as narrator expresses this for him.  Hemingway uses English words, with Spanish-type word placement, in expressing his thoughts.  The source novel has a passage where the old man and his youthful friend are talking baseball: "I fear the great (Joe) DiMaggio will have great peril from the Tigers of Detroit."

Spencer Tracy: "little feesh" ?

HINT:  when he received his Oscar statuette for this movie, he was surprised to find it inscribed to comic-strip hero "Dick Tracy".
