  • The day after Spencer Tracy won the Best Actor Oscar for his performance in this film, an MGM publicist released a statement--without consulting Tracy first--that the actor would donate his Oscar to the real Boys Town in Nebraska. Tracy agreed to make the donation if the Academy would send him a replacement Oscar. When the replacement arrived, the engraving on the award read: "Best Actor - Dick Tracy."
