The principal value is in the portrayal of Spencer Tracy as Miss Gordon's formerly seafaring father. He gives a sterling performance, well shaded with comedy. Teresa Wright is an excellent foil as his wife, and Jenn Simmons is properly intense as the budding actress. worth, for $1, Jove and affection, N half. Lot 1, Block 10, original survey of Leachville.
