A distinctive voice coming from a man walking in the shadows is a set-up if most of the people in the audience can identify the voice's owner.   The voice fans in the audience might identify the source before the actor steps into the light and be pleased they didn't need to see the guy's mug to I.D. the perpetrator.   The celebrity dominated culture in the United States would have been sorely disappointed if the image of the speaker's face didn't solve the "who dat?"" puzzle of the familiar voice.

What would the reaction to a technological cloning have been if it turned out that the voice and the face belonged to be Edward R.

Obviously using the voice and image of W. C. Fields would have had a sabotage effect.   Would today's hipsters recognize, let alone appreciate, Fields' voice?   Do they still sell the posters featuring the once famous comedian?   They were ubiquitous in the late Sixties, don't cha know?

Could the folks who want to see the Bush gang hang possibly misinterpret the Cling Eastwood commercial and see it as an endorsement of Dirty Harry tactics that include a complete disregard for the rules of war that were proclaimed at the Nuremburg War Crime Trials?  

 

In some long ago news broadcast we heard a news story that asserted that female infants would pay more attention to the voice of a male stranger than they would to their mother's voice.

According to a reliable source, over a decade ago a young UCLA coed, who was working as an interviewer for a phone survey, called the provided phone number and started to convince the young man who answered the phone to participate in the poll.   He heard her voice and offered to come from New York City for a date in L. A. the following weekend.   Since she wasn't hurting for male attention, she politely declined.

BP graduated from college in the mid sixties (at the bottom of the class?) He told his draft board that Vietnam could be won without his participation. He is still appologizing for that mistake. He received his fist photo lesson from a future (more...)
