Cohan in this Oscar-nominated biography.

Oscar-winner Walter Huston ("The Treasure of the Sierra Madre") received his third Oscar-nomination as Cohan's show business father.

About the Movie
Spencer Tracy stars in an Academy Award winning performance as a humble fisherman who teaches a spoiled rich kid about life and love in this classic adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's Captains Courageous. Spoiled, rich, pantywaist brat Harvey (Freddie Bartholomew) has never wanted for anything in his life--except friends and family. But when the boy gets seasick on an ocean liner bound for Europe and falls overboard, he faces death alone in the mid Atlantic until a Portuguese fishing vessel rescues him. The ship will not return to port until its hold is full of fish, and while at sea, the ungrateful Harvey will have to something he has never done before--work for his keep. Over several months, Harvey receives from the fisherman Manuel (Tracy) the love he never felt from his father, comes to understand the value of hard work--and learns more than he would learn at a lifetime of prep schools and comfortable jobs.
About the Movie
Katharine Hepburn is the snooty daughter of a wealthy Philadelphia family and about to marry for the second time. Things get hilariously complicated when her cunning ex-husband Cary Grant enters the scene with tabloid reporter James Stewart in tow. While Stewart falls helplessly in love with Hepburn, she rejects her stuffed-shirt fiance and realizes she's still in love with Grant. One of the greatest romantic comedies ever produced, it was recently selected as one of the top 100 American films of all time by the prestigious American Film Institute. Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and winner for Best Screenplay. Stewart ("It's A Wonderful Life," "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington") took home an Oscar for his earnest portrayal of the smitten reporter, and Oscar-winner Hepburn ("The African Queen," "On Golden Pond") received her third nomination. Ruth Hussey ("Northwest Passage") earned an Oscar-nomination as a cynical tabloid photographer.
