No mention of the recent Hollywood movie starring Paul Rudd as Berg? I enjoyed it, but wondered how much was real-- from what you guys say it looks like most of it.

The detail in that story I like is that when they sent him to spy on Japan, his “cover” was a team made up of players who were, conservatively, somewhere between fifty and ten thousand times better than him.

I want to see a ridiculously inaccurate spy thriller film about Berg teaming up with fellow WWII-era spy Julia Child to fight Nazis.

There has to be a scene where Berg takes down a double agent with a fastball and Child has to discreetly dispose of the body by whipping up a special dinner roast for the Nazi high command.
