[Spencer Tracy's] acting, always sincere, is consistently compelling, despite the fact that the theme of Anna Segher's best seller "The Seventh Cross," is not without its limitations.

If you will accept this premise, despite the evidence of recent deeds, then you should be both moved and shaken by the better part of this film.
