John Goodman brings the legendary Babe Ruth to life in this triumphant film Entertainment Weekly calls "a crowd pleaser." Co-starring Kelly McGillis (Witness), The Babe chronicles Ruth's phenomenal story - from his hard knock beginnings at Baltimore orphanage, to his meteoric rise to baseball superstardom and his poignant retirement from the game. His amazing life and career included seven American League pennants, four World Series championships, two tempestuous marriages and a wild lifestyle that earned him numerous suspensions. The Babe is the definitive story of one of sport's most fascinating figures, capturing all the drama and excitement of the greatest player in baseball history.
