Everyone should note the passing of the best voice in Hollywood, even though you’ve probably never seen his face.
Don LaFontaine’s was the ultra-deep voice that accompanied trailers to some 5,000 movies and could have made a shopping list sound like the Ten Commandments. It’s probably incalculable how many duff films had their audience figures massaged because LaFontaine’s build-up made them all sound must-see.
If we are indeed made in God’s image, His voice has just returned to base.
Thanks to the Drake forum for the tip-off.
