About the Author

The New England Vintage Film Society, Incorporated www.nevintagefilm.org) is a charitable, tax-exempt, non-profit, 501 (c) (3) Massachusetts public corporation committed to the preservation, restoration and presentation of classic and vintage American films to enlighten, enrich, educate and entertain.

It is our mission to extol Hollywood’s Golden Age and America’s feature films of that era—evaluating our interpretations, findings, discoveries and viewpoints in view of the state of contemporary American society and world affairs.

We believe motion pictures created for mass audiences throughout the United States from the 1930s through the 1960s serve as important historical records documenting and reflecting America’s prevailing social, cultural, economic, political, religious and moral attitudes of those decades.

We sponsor special projects, activities and events to affirm the significance of these films by actor,
director, studio, genre, theme, etc. and, to preserve and restore Golden Age films at risk of loss.

Our mission is being realized, in the short term, by publishing this book of essays and images celebrating a selection of Mr. Spencer Tracy’s essentially forgotten and “lost” Fox masterpieces, including:

Up the River (1930)
Quick Millions (1931)
Goldie (1931)
Me and My Gal (1932)
The Face in the Sky (1933)
The Power and the Glory (1933)
Looking for Trouble (1934)
Bottoms Up (1934)
Now I’ll Tell ((1934)
Marie Galante (1934)
It’s a Small World (1935)
Dante’s Inferno (1935)
