Summary
The name "Babe Ruth" is synonymous with two words- "home run." We hear his name and the numbers 60 and 714 instantly spring to mind. Prodigious homers are still described as 'Ruthian.' What other athlete had his name turned into an adjective? Ruth belonged to the Golden Age of Sport, for of all the names that dominated the roaring 20s none was bigger than Babe. Known for devouring everything that appealed to him, he possessed an insatiable appetite for life. Combining historic photographs, newsreel footage, and film clips with reminiscences by former teammates, journalists, chance acquaintances and biographers, this film presents a look at the life of the man who truly made baseball the national pastime
