Marty Glickman spent his career calling games for the New York Knicks, Giants, Jets and other teams. In a Hall of Fame career that spanned over fifty years, Marty became a broadcasting institution. Prior to his sports-casting career, however, Marty was a record-setting sprinter, dropped from the American relay team at the 1936 Berlin Olympics to appease Hitler. This fascinating documentary tells the story of the travesty of the 1936 Olympics and the remarkable career which followed. The film includes appearances by Louis Zamperini, fellow Olympian runner and WWII P.O.W.; Larry King; Jerry Stiller; Bob Costas and Marv Albert.
