    A rousing and agreeable movie that resurrects a small but important episode in baseball history that parallels the larger history of the nation.
  2. 89
    Kempner's documentary is a streamlined, gorgeous piece of work, full of revelations of time, place, and person.

    While it preserves his baseball feats, it looks beyond them to clarify Greenberg's place in American culture.

    Hits one out of the park.
  5. 70
    Places Greenberg in historical context -- as a pioneering Jew and as an all-American sports hero.
  6. 50
    In the absence of any greater cultural context, the ritual reiteration of Greenberg's greatness grows wearisome.
