    “And you’ll have no problem from me…..”

    Spencer Tracy’s final scene on film was the finest moment of his career and also one of the best and most memorable scenes ever captured on film. It isn’t showy or flashy, but an honest and real monologue that never felt forced or fake….and it is also helped by the emotional support from his longtime lover Katharine Hepburn in the background with her tear-streamed face (I think it is made all the more bittersweet because she knew he was dying and that on some level, he was speaking to her).

    Despite strong work from Newman & Steiger, and solid work from Hoffman & Beatty, Spencer Tracy just has something special that I can’t help but vote for.

    I’m not sure if it’s a unpopular opinion or not but I don’t think Steiger deserved this. I’d have nominated Poitier before him. And probably Alain Delon (Le Samourai) before Tracy, though I love his performance.

    1. Hoffman
    2. Beatty
    3. Newman
    4. Tracy
    5. Steiger

    Newman deserved to win for this instead of Color of money. His best performance (for me)

    Sidney Poitier for In the Heat of the Night.

    Of the nominees, Paul Newman should have won hands down for his most iconic character.

    If it couldn’t have been Poitier or Robert Blake (In Cold Blood) then it should’ve been Newman.

    Interesting to note that of these five, all have won an Oscar, and Beatty is the only one to have not won Best Actor. Also, I don’t think these are any of the respective actor’s best performances.

    This is definitely my favorite of Newman’s performances, but Hoffman gets my vote. All of the nominees are great, but I’d probably switch out either Tracy or Steiger with Poitier (who would also be in my Top 3).

    This is a tough poll for me. I have a lot of affection for all of the above, and not just their performances but their overall resume and personas. I flipped a coin and it came out Warren Beatty, but they would all have made worthy winners Iincluding the actual winner, who was terrific in ’65

    Fantastic lineup…1967 was such a great year for films.

    Although I’m not a fan of the film itself…Spencer Tracy wins my vote easily.  A perfect performance from a nearly perfect actor.  Hoffman & Newman are close behind.

    Beatty & Steiger are quite good but nowhere near the other 3 gentlemen.
