Join the Spy Museum at the Old Greenbelt Theatre for a special film screening & discussion The Catcher Was a Spy. Based on a true story, the film follows Major League Baseball player and Ivy League graduate Morris “Moe” Berg (Rudd), who is recruited into the Office of Strategic Services (or OSS) due to the fact that he can speak seven languages. His mission was to help the U.S. defeat Nazi Germany before they can build an atomic bomb. The Catcher Was a Spy, was directed by Ben Lewin (Please Stand By) and also stars Jeff Daniels, Paul Giamatti, Guy Pearce, and Sienna Miller.
Don't miss an exciting post-screening discussion by historian/curator, Dr. Vince Houghton, to talk spies, baseball, and US military history!
