  • Not many documentaries-not many, certainly, devoted to sports figures-can claim to bring their subjects to life so fully.

  • Not just an affectionate portrait of a gifted athlete-turned-groundbreaking sportscaster, the film is also a fond remembrance of life in New York City from the 1930s through the '70s.

  • The rousing story of Marty Glickman,who invented,in the 1940s and 1950s, the modern style of sports broadcasting.

  • Marty Glickman was simply being the best Marty Glickman he could be. For many he wasn't just the best Marty Glickman he was simply: the best.

  • The documentary hews to a conventional structure, its own story chronological and in some instances, perfunctory, using archival voiceover from Glickman (who died in 2001) as well as bits of his announcing.
