Dec. 21, 1958: Jeffrey Hunter says of making “The Last Hurrah”: “Working with Spencer Tracy was great. Some of the most telling scenes between me and my wife, played by Diane Foster, had to be cut out in editing the overall picture, which is essentially the story of a character. My role is chiefly that of an observer. In the original script there was a well-defined subplot about Diane and me, but now she has only two scenes or so left in."
