Product Notes

Before Marv Albert, Bob Costas and Mike Breen, there was Marty Glickman. This documentary chronicles the life and career of Glickman, a Jewish-American athlete-turned-broadcaster who pioneered many of the techniques, phrases and programming innovations that are commonplace in sports reporting today. A multi-sport athlete with blistering speed, he was a teammate of Jesse Owens on the 1936 U.S. Olympic track team, but politics and anti-Semitism robbed him of the chance to win gold in the 400-meter relay - an event held in front of Adolf Hitler in Berlin. Returning home, Glickman was a football star at Syracuse, then found his niche in sports broadcasting - narrating newsreels, calling pro, college and high-school games (most notably in the NFL and NBA), and shaping sports programming on numerous networks (including HBO) for over 50 years. Featuring archival footage and interviews with colleagues, friends and fans, Glickman is an illuminating portrait of a man who overcame prejudice to forge a remarkable career in sports, setting the gold standard for sports broadcasters past, present and future.
