A well produced and accurate account of one of America's true sports heroes.

I was just five years old when Babe Ruth died, but he became one of my all time heroes. I was in my Kindergarten classroom when the radio announced that Babe Ruth had died. My teacher started crying and before long most of the boys in the room also started to cry. We all wanted to grow up to be like Babe Ruth and hit homeruns. This documentary is the best I've ever seen about Ruth. It not only pointed out his achievements, it also accounted for his failures and misbehaving at times. Other baseball stars have gone on to hit more home runs than the Babe since his passing, but his personality along with the love of his fans has never been matched by any of them. Please take the time to watch this great movie.

Americans destroy their own history and legends. Why in the name of Miller Huggins was it necessary to year down Yankee Stadium? This is as absurd as The English tearing down The Tower.

I have a deep love of baseball, and growing up every good hitter was compared to Babe Ruth. He was larger than life. This documentary was not worthy of him. First, it was too old. The archival footage was great, but someone should have done a new documentary. Ruth deserved a new and fresh look at his life, even if the same facts were shown and the same conclusions would be drawn.

His charisma and love of children after having a tough childhood.
Verified purchase
I liked how he always pushed himself to do what he could for kids.

I didn't like the fact that he was a hard drinker and that ruined a few years for him. If he hadn't done that he probably would have lived longer and would have had consistently good years.

I am a baseball person, love the game. This is a good film for someone who loves the game and the Babe. Lots of pictures and a biography of one of baseball's best.
