Do any of you know if Hemingway ever visited Spencer Tracey on the set of Old Man and the Sea?

I have a photograph--real--of Tracey and a man who looks like Hemingway because I know it is not Sturgis, the director, of the film.

Thanks!

Hemingway was on the set of Old Man And The Sea as a consumtant. He did not get along well with Tracy.

             Maybe if Hemingway and Tracey shared a stiff belt of Absinthe they would have been more amicable.

That wasn't the problem. Hemingway (one m) thought Tracy complained too much. Found him to be too much a "girlie man" (thanks Arnold).

That was a troubled set ... not due as much to the people as to the failure to find a suitable fish in the Caribbean. Most of the footage ended up being of a rubber prop fish in a Hollywood tank ... really cruddy.

Thanks.  I have the original of the photograph showing Tracy and Hemingway together.  I bought a bunch of early movie star pictures from the estate of a photographer for Parade magazine.

Hemingway is in the movie. In the café at the end of movie sitting at a table wearing the same cloths as in the pic posted by “rob on the job”

Cheers, All.

Just Dave is absolutely right.  I have a video of the Old man and the Sea and watched it again.  Actually I fast forwarded to the end and watched the final scene.  I watched it maybe 50 times.  Ernie was sitting at a table with three other men.  He was in the middle with the men on each side of him.  They were way in back of the scene and you would miss it unless you were told to be looking for him.  It’s not a very clear shot but if you focus on the head shape and cap: it’s Ernie.

More importantly, there are two excellent scenes with Mary Hemingway.  And don’t try to tell me it’s not Mary.  There is a table of 3-4 women (I think it’s 3 and a man is with them).  The first scene is Mary walking by on her way to the table. – right there full frame and if you “pause” it you can see Mary in the foreground and Ernie in the background.  The second scene is a profile shot of Mary’s head as she sits at the table and talks to the lady across from her.

I’ve watched Old Man and the Sea a number of times and never saw this.  Movies back then did not have the trailers the way they do today so they were not listed in the cast. 

Thanx Dave for the interesting lead.

You’re very welcome!

I just got The Old Man on DVD now you’re talking “fast forward”, and your quite right about Mary it also points it out on the DVD extra’s.

The DVD has a very short documentary called THE LEGEND AND THE SEA but I stress VERY SHORT (still cool) if its 3 mins. your lucky.

 

Cheers, All
