The Babe Ruth Story is a 1948 baseball film biography of Babe Ruth, the famed New York Yankees slugger. It stars William Bendix as the ballplayer and Claire Trevor as his wife. It was rush released while Ruth himself was still alive. Oddly, it makes no mention whatsoever of Ruth's first wife, Helen.

Critical Reception

Reviews were, for the most part, negative. Citing the film's moments of heavy handedness including a rather contrived reanactment of Babe Ruth's famous World Series home run against the Chicago Cubs, some critics have even gone far to call it one of the worst sports biopics of all time.
