BABE RUTH

An idealized portrait of the famous slugger. Deep-slum, parochial school, baseball- such was the pattern of a life which allowed small room to develop a fine, sensitive person, and Martin Weldon, a baseball fan from way back, born and raised in Brooklyn, makes the most of the Babe's colorful career in his chosen field- the games he played the scores he made, the rows he had with managers, with authorities, the penalties and how he took them. Straight baseball- for that market.
