Don LaFontaine - THE Voice behind the Movie Trailers, 1940-2008

Don LaFontaine, THE voice behind all those amazing movie trailers has passed away, leaving a major legacy in Hollywood History. Along with Stan Winston, LaFontaine is another major behind-the-scenes player in the film industry that has left this world in 2008. Can you imagine the trailers to classic hits such as Terminator 2, Shrek, Batman Returns, and Friday the 13th WITHOUT his regal voice booming over the montages? I could go on and on, but why not just HEAR his voice, watch his story, and celebrate his life?:
