Hal Douglas, Iconic Movie Trailer Narrator, Dies at 89

Hal Douglas, who lent his voice to thousands of movie trailers, passed away on March 7, People reports. He was 89.

Douglas died at his northern Virginia home, surrounded by his wife Ruth and daughter Sarah, according to his family. The legendary voice-over artist had been battling pancreatic cancer since 2010.

Remember other celebrities we lost this year

Douglas rarely made onscreen appearances, though he did for the 2002 Jerry Seinfeld documentary Comedian, in which he was filmed working from a recording booth. But for the past 15 years, Douglas worked from the horse farm he shared with his wife.

After suffering a stroke in October, Douglas lost most of his speaking ability. "It was very, very interesting to watch this man learning how to speak again," his daughter Sarah said, adding that he was able to relearn a limited amount.

Despite his 2010 cancer diagnosis, Sarah wanted other cancer patients to know that "he had a great four years."
