Voice-over King, Hal Douglas Passes Away at Age 89

Hal Douglas has passed away at age 89.

Hal Douglas has passed away at age 89.

It is with great sadness that we report to you that Hal Douglas, considered one of the greatest trailer voice-over talents has died today. The family has said that Douglas died as a result of complications from pancreatic cancer, he was 89.

If you don’t know the name Hal Douglas from the name or the face, that’s not surprising. Douglas’s name was not particularly well known outside of the Hollywood production business. What does make him instantly recognizable by all but the most media abstinent is his voice. “In a world…” is probably his most well known opening line. Movie trailers will not be the same without his voice.

All the staff at Free For All offer our deepest condolences to Mr. Douglas’s wife and children.

Here are a few videos showcasing the great talent of this movie legend:
