Description by OLDIES.com:

The amazing history of the New York Yankees, who dominated major league baseball with 26 World Series Championships and 39 American League pennants, is vividly depicted in this rousing motion picture.

From their inauspicious beginnings as the New York Highlanders to the Golden Age of Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, and Lou Gehrig, continuing to the present, the stunning history of the Yankees is recreated in archival photos, clips and interviews. Narrator Robert Klein recounts Babe Ruth's rise to American icon, DiMaggio's 56 game hitting streak, Gehrig's farewell speech, as well as Maris and Mantle's home run duel - just of few of the legendary highlights in this incredible baseball saga!

Rating 4.0 A very good primer on the Team of the 20th Century! Movie Lover: from Ambler, PA US -- March, 3, 2008

I just received this DVD over the weekend, and got to watch it last night. Apart from the music being in many other baseball films (some of the music includes the score from The Natural), the documentary itself is nicely done and would serve very well as a primer for someone who wants to get a working knowledge of the New York Yankees.

Some of the footage is some I've not seen before (and I've watched quite a few baseball and Yankees documentaries in my time), and seeing some of the footage in color (I always thought DiMaggio played in a black & white world - ha!) was quite good.

And, for the price, it really can't be a bad deal! I got this one with the Bronx Baseball Legends DVDs on sale here, and I'm looking forward to seeing those!
