Glickman DVD

SKU ID #504514
Before Marv Albert and Bob Costas, there was Marty Glickman. A gifted Jewish-American athlete who was denied the chance to represent the U.S. at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, he went on to become one of the most revered and influential sportscasters in history, pioneering many of the techniques, phrases and programming innovations that are commonplace today.

With executive producers including Martin Scorsese, Glickman is the first documentary from writer, producer and director James L. Freedman, who produced Glickman’s New York radio show as a high school senior. Featuring archival footage and interviews with such notables as Marv Albert, Bob Costas, Jim Brown, Larry King, and Jerry Stiller, the film tells the story of a man who overcame prejudice to forge a remarkable career, setting the gold standard for sports broadcasters past, present and future.

Comments about this product:

I was born in 1950 and barely remember Marty Glickman when he announced the New York Football Giants games on the radio with "Al D." My main memories of him are in his later years, during his decline. I had no idea of his history as an olympic athlete in the Berlin Olympics nor of his innovative contributions to broadcasting. What a wonderful and well-made documentary!
