Babe Ruth is a television biopic made on the legendary New York Yankee slugger. The film is a journey of the life of Babe Ruth (Stephen Lang), right from his childhood years at the orphanage, till the time he retired from the Yankees, way back in 1935. The film essentially talks about his periodic highs and lows in the baseball team as well as about his marriages, first to the uneducated Helen Woodford (Yvonne Suhor) and second to the modest showgirl Claire Hodgson (Lisa Zane). His recurrent conversations with the owner of the New York Yankees, Colonel Ruppert (Donald Moffat), his lifestyle motto of "wine, women, and more women", his all time achievement and record-breaking event of the 60th home run in 1927, the 'three-homer' match with the Boston Braves in his farewell season of 1935 and his unsuccessful desire of becoming the team manager has all been adequately portrayed in the movie.
