"Bud" Greenspan (1926-2010) was a film director, writer, and producer known for his sports documentaries. In 1947 Greenspan became sports director at New York City's WMGM, at that time the largest sports radio station in the US, when he was 21 years old. He dabbled in documentary filmmaking in 1952, with The Strongest Man in the World, a 15-minute feature on weightlifter John Davis, but he began his filmmaking career in earnest in 1964, accompanying Jesse Owens to West Berlin to film Jesse Owens Returns to Berlin. In 1967, he formed his own film company, Cappy Productions, Inc., with wife Cappy Petrash Greenspan. In 1979, he launched the first of several vignette series: This Day in Sports, which aired on CBS, featured 365 30-second film shorts highlighting exciting sports moments from years past. It was followed in 1980 by the similar Olympic Moments, Olympic Events and Olympic Vignettes. In 1994, Greenspan was inducted in the International Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. In 2004, Greenspan was inducted as a "Special Contributor" into the United States Olympic Hall of Fame. Corners slightly rounded. Horizontal fold across center. Otherwise, fine condition.
