The Spy Behind Home Plate (2019)


Director: Aviva Kempner
Stars: Moe Berg, Nicholas Dawidoff.



Aviva Kempner’s The Spy Behind Home Plate tells the real story of Morris “Moe” Berg, the enigmatic and brilliant Jewish baseball player turned spy. Berg caught and fielded in the major leagues during baseball’s Golden Age in the 1920s and 1930s. But very few people know that Berg also worked for the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), spying in Europe and playing a prominent role in America’s efforts to undermine the German atomic bomb program during WWII. It reveals the life of this unknown Jewish hero through rare historical footage and photographs as well as revealing interviews with an All-Star roster of celebrities and other individuals from the worlds of sports, spycraft, and history. Berg may have had only a .243 batting average during his 15-year major league career, but it was the stats he collected for the OSS that made him a MVP to his country during World War II.

Looks like this could be interesting.  Not really my kind of film though so I'll pass.

I'm not a baseball fan at all, but this might worth a look.

A very intriguing subject and although I would like to know more about it, I doubt I would sit through this one.
