The most complete chronicle on the Yankees!
8 January 2001 | by (CT, USA) – See all my reviews

I had this video when it came out, but have not seen it since mine broke about 10 years ago. I remember the movie goes through the entire history of the team. It showed all the World Series the Yankees played in. Each different era is depicted perfectly. Any great Yankee you can think of is in this. Very well-done. The only flaw I saw in the movie was how briefly Phil Rizzuto is in the film. Rizzuto was the Yanks greatest shortstop, but he is barely in the movie. I was always surprised how little attention he got. Especially considering this movie is from the late 1980's, when the Hall of Fame argument concerning Rizzuto was still in full force. The film makes Rizzuto look like a very minor part of the scene. Tony Kubek, Bobby Richardson and Frank Crosetti got more time in the movie than Rizzuto. They deserve it, but Rizzuto got less than he deserved. Otherwise, this movie was fantastic! Definitely a must see for any Yankee fan. Great!
