Tribute: Don LaFontaine
Posted on September 2, 2008 at 6:00 pm
I was very sorry to hear of the passing of Don LaFontaine. Few people knew his name but everyone knew his voice. He did the narration for more than 5000 movie trailers. You’ve heard him say it dozens of times: “In a world….” The trailers were not always enticing, but his voice always was, familiar, inviting, almost intimate. I will miss having him adding so much excitement to the anticipation of coming attractions.
I love this spoof with LaFontaine and his colleagues.
And here is a clip about LaFontaine and his work.
