On the surface, a movie about a New York radio sportscaster might seem a niche project of limited appeal. But Marty Glickman was no ordinary play-by-play announcer, and the documentary “Glickman” is much more than a sports biography. Lovingly made by first-time writer-director James L. Freedman, who worked for Glickman as a teenager, the film is a tribute to a genuine Jewish hero.
“Glickman”, a moving documentary by James L. Freedman, premiering August 26 on HBO, is the emotional life story of Marty Glickman, a ground-breaking American sportscaster. It is also the story of 20th Century American Judaism.
