Film description from MLB:

“An incorrigible boy transforms into a global superhero wielding a powerful home run swing and a big smile. Through the use of rare and enhanced archival material, coupled with fresh historical and psychological perspectives on the Ruth legend, the filmmakers present a compelling case for Babe’s deep impact and relevance in modern times. AMERICAN HERCULES: BABE RUTH aims to understand and celebrate the most fascinating and entertaining American life ever lived. Babe Ruth remains a mythical hero who reminds us that the greatest legends are often based on true stories.”
