Just saw rare film, "The Face In The Sky"
17 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Any pre-1935 film with Spencer Tracy is not only rare viewing, but required viewing for true film buffs. This is a somewhat light-hearted story with Tracy as a billboard sign artist, teamed with Stuart Erwin. Mis-adventures ensue when they encounter a young woman forced to wed a hayseed she doesn't love. Somewhat ambitious production value brings the story from the rural hinterlands to a conclusion in New York City. Spencer Tracy gives a solid performance as a hard-on-the-outside soft-on-the-inside artist. Stuart Erwin provides comedy relief as his sidekick. I don't recall this film ever being shown on television, as it's one of those early Fox films that are hard to come by. Recommended, easy viewing for Tracy fans.
