Sheldon Leonard's voice

Sheldon Leonard has to be one of the most recognizable voices in radio or movie history, although very few people perhaps knew the man behind the voice. The quintessential gangster brogue.

Give an example of something he was in to connect the voice. Not Jack Benny's gangster huh? ha

I have no idea.

You are correct. The racetrack tout that was always saying "Hey, bud," to Jack Benny.

Really! I was just taking a guess. That was the first roughian that came to mind. ha

He's also in quite a few old black and white movies isn't he?

MICHAELSPAPPY said...

Yes. He was an active actor, and later became a producer, I think.
