Goofs

When we first see Moe Berg in Fenway Park, the announcer says "Two out, top of the third, man on first. Moe Berg is still in at catcher. Fifteen years in the league and still standing; how long can this guy go on?" Unless there's an injury, there's no reason to pull a catcher so early in a baseball game. Furthermore, this scene took place in 1936, and Berg didn't retire until 1939. Fifteen years was his entire MLB career. At that point, he'd only spent 12 years in the majors. See more »

Underrated.
11 July 2018 | by kawasaki-75511See all my reviews

Well acted and filmed. As much a biography that enlightens about a fairly unknown story as a spy story. The negative reviews seem to be by those hoping for a baseball flick.
