The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg

Jewish baseballer Hank Greenberg became an idol for millions back in the 1930s. Documentarian Aviva Goldsman evokes the era with classic newsreel footage and by interviewing well-known fans (Walter Matthau and Alan Dershowitz to name a couple). More than just a nostalgic sports documentary, The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg examines the melting-pot mythos of modern American society and one of the early crusaders against racism who made his mark by doing his job and doing it like a champ. 95 minutes
