R.I.P. Don LaFontaine

That most recognizable of unrecognizable men passed away, sadly, on Monday. Don LaFontaine, who voiced over 5,000 film trailers during his career, died in Los Angeles of complications caused by an ongoing lung-related illness.

The BBC website reported that 'LaFontaine insisted he never cared that no one knew his name or his face, though millions of film fans knew his voice.'
