A major league baseball player, Moe Berg, lives a double life working for the Office of Strategic Services.
The baseball game scenes were filmed at iconic Fenway Park in Boston, MA.
William J. Donovan:
You're an unusual man Mr. Berg, you speak 7 languages, you're an athlete, you're more than up to the physical requirements of the job...
Moe Berg: What job?
When Berg first meets Donovan, he is a colonel (eagles on his shoulders), but the sign on his door says "General William Donovan". Now, which should it be? Well, in real life, Donovan was promoted to brigadier general in March 1943 and Berg joined the OSS in August 1943, which would argue for general, but in the movie he shows Donovan his Tokyo film, which Berg screened for intelligence officers in 1942 when Donovan was a colonel. To make things more interesting, we don't if Donovan was one of them and we do know that Berg worked for the OIAA from January 1942 until he joined the OSS in 1943.
