KING COHN The Life and Times of Hollywood Mogul Harry Cohn

by | Read by John Landis

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2000

Harry Cohn, the founder of Columbia Pictures, was a rough, undereducated operator who rose to prominence by force of will and profanity. The narrator--film director John Landis--has an unpolished voice that is perfect for Cohn's story. Landis's scratchy, uneven tone is fun to listen to because he seems to be having fun. He laughs at some of the stories he narrates, and sometimes his voice threatens to break, but Landis is easy to follow, and his diction is terrific. He is obviously a film history buff who brings his passion for the subject to every page. This type of narration will not appeal to some who want a more professional effort. But if you want that feeling of "hanging out and telling stories," this book is for you. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 01]
