Ever hear of Marty Glickman? He was on the Olympic team that represented the US in Berlin in 1936, alongside Jesse Owens. The documentary, Glickman, tells the story of Marty’s youth as a runner, his trip to the Berlin games (great story, don’t want to spoil it here), and then his rise to become one of the most influential sportscasters in history. Just as most musicians are influenced by the Beatles, most sportscasters have been influenced by Marty Glickman.
Glickman is available on HBO, HBO on-demand, and HBO Go. Terrific documentary.
