What was the name of the 1950s movie about Ernest Hemingway starring Spencer Tracy?
—Robert Deschamp, The Villages, Fla.

There wasn’t one, but you’re probably thinking of The Old Man and the Sea. The 1958 movie, with Tracy as the “old man,” was based on Hemingway’s famous tale, but was not actually about the author.
