Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story
JEWS AND BASEBALL: AN AMERICAN LOVE STORY
St. Louis Premiere  Canada/USA  English
Director: Peter Miller  91 min. Documentary Complete and unabridged
Two-time Academy Award winner, Dustin Hoffman, narrates an exhilarating sweep of contributions made by Jewish major-league players - including Sandy Koufax, Hank Greenberg, Andy Cohen, Al Rosen, and St. Louisans, Ken Holtzman and Art Shamsky - to the sport that is, arguably, the most
quintessentially American institution.
No prior knowledge or love of the game required. The story transcends sports for lessons in immigration and assimilation, prejudice and adulation, and cultural transformation with abiding loyalty to Jewish tradition.
Photos, rare archival footage of memorable moments in baseball history, and a spicy array of interviews with athletes, writers, baseball management, and celebrity fans, such as Ron Howard and Larry King. Lively score includes klezmer melodies, Benny Goodman, Yo-Yo Ma, and (of course) "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" sung by jazz-swing vocalist, Sophie Milman.
