To explain the dramatization of Berg’s sexuality in the movie, Robert Rodat said that when there is smoke, there’s probably a fire for a dramatist. In contrast, there isn’t necessarily a fire for historians when there is a smoke cloud.

Moe Berg was never involved in any notable romantic relationships, be it homosexual or heterosexual. He died a bachelor on May 9, 1972, in Belleville, New York, U.S.  

Moreover, Berg’s bachelor status fueled the speculations of him being gay even more. However, Nicholas Dawidoff claimed Moe Berg being gay was nothing more than speculation.

Furthermore, to make his claim stronger, he said, “ I never found evidence he had a gay relationship.”
