Upon accepting his second Oscar, Tracy stated that the award really belonged to Father Flanagan. True to form, Tracy soon sent the statue to the Boys Town headquarters with the inscription:

"To Father Edward J. Flanagan, whose great human qualities, timely simplicity, and inspiring courage were strong enough to shine through my humble effort."
