Before Marv Albert, Bob Costas, and Mike Breen, there was Marty Glickman. The 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.

A man who bounced back from serious injustice at 1936 Olympics (perpetrated by U.S. Olympic officials and coaches no less) to become a sports broadcasting legend. When I was a child I knew Glickman's name from broadcasts and only later learned that he was a boy wonder sprinter. Oh, and while he was a world-class sprinter, he also starred in football at Syracuse. A thoughtful gentleman as well. His story near the end about a Japanese athlete he ran against is especially moving.
