The famed slugger is played by Bendix, who resembles Ruth slightly in looks and not at all in baseball ability. The film traces the "life and times" of Ruth, including his famous "called shot" in the 1932 World Series. Written by

While the movie is ripe with factual errors, some of the ones associated with the Yankees 1927 season are probably the worst. Home uniforms are depicted as white with pinstripes with the word "YANKEES" on the front. In fact, the home uniforms had nothing on them...only the away uniforms...in gray...carried the word "YANKEES" on the front. Mel Allen is depicted broadcasting the game where Ruth hits his 60th home run. In fact, the Yankees regular season games were not broadcast until 1939 and Mel Allen was only 14 in 1927. See more
