Norteamericano de nacimiento y actor de corazón, es una de las figuras emblemáticas del cine de mitad del siglo XX. Su porte duro, su ortodoxa manera de hablar y su aspecto físico (que no se correspondía con el del clásico galán), marcaron el compás no sólo de la actuación en Hollywood, sino de la escena mundial. "Casablanca", probablemente la mejor película de todos los tiempos, lo llevó a la fama, una popularidad que no se quitaría ni con la muerte. Please note: This audiobook s in Spanish. 1.

There is no general consensus about how Shakespeare "should" be played. There are no rules. But, while the Bard created superhuman characters and placed them in situations that stretch the imagination to its limits, he also provided his actors with the keys to playing them. In A Shakespearean Actor Prepares, actor, director and teacher Adrian Brine teams up with celebrated actor Michael York to reveal these keys. In pointing out sources of energy in Shakespeare's plays, they make it possible for an actor to galvanize his fantasy - and liberate his talent. Shakespeare knew more about the art of acting and the art of theater than any other playwright. Discover his secrets in this remarkable guide. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael York.

A must for any fan of the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters! His voice can be heard in countless classic animated cartoons, still seen on TV daily around the world. He was Yogi Bear, Huckleberry Hound, Quick Draw McGraw, Baba Looey, Super Snooper, Blabbermouse, Snagglepuss, Augie Doggy, Mr. Jinks, Wally Gator, Elroy Jetson, Cap'n Crunch, and hundreds of others. He worked with nearly every major animation director, including Messers Hanna and Barbera, Jay Ward, Walter Lantz, Chuck Jones, and Tex Avery. He worked puppets for Bob Clampett (Beany and Cecil). Fans included Groucho, Harpo, Lionel Barrymore, and even Albert Einstein. His collaborations with satirist Stan Freberg sold millions of records. Yet you have probably never heard of him. His name is Daws Butler. Daws Butler, Characters Actor brings you up close and personal into the life of the man who many consider to be the greatest voice actor of the 20th century. This audio biography is narrated by Daws Butler protégé Joe Bevilacqua (Joe Bev), who co-wrote the book with Ben Ohmart. Joe Bev also demonstrates many of Daws' character voices along the way. This authorized biography includes detailed eye-witness accounts and personal reminisces by his colleagues. Best of all, the book includes the words of Daws Butler himself telling his own story. How did Daws create the voice of Huckleberry Hound? What did comedian Bert Lahr think of Snagglepuss? Who made the first Cecil puppet? What was the Daws Butler Workshop? What was it like having Yogi Bear as a dad? "Is there any question the name Daws is plural? No single human being could have created so many amusingly convincing voices as did the talented, singularly plural Daws Butler. For Daws, the term 'genius' must perforce be exponentially multiplied: voices times voices times voices, and so on. I am flattered and honored that he based Fibber Fox on me." Shelley Berman, actor (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Stand 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joe Bevilacqua. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/009270/bk_blak_009270_sample.mp3.
