In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Sep 17, 2012

Paul Frees was a lot like Mel Blanc, only not so well-known by the public. 

Frees was the voice of the Pillsbury Doughboy, Boris Badinoff, Professor Ludwig Von Drake, and two of the Beatles in the popular cartoon series. 

He was both female voices when Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis posed as women in Some Like It Hot. 

He was the deep-voiced narrator of hundred of films, from The Manchurian Candidate to Hardware Wars to Earth vs. the Flying Saucers.

And he did every single voice heard on the short-story radio series The Player.

This week, we present two episodes of The Player, starring Paul Frees, Paul Frees, and, of course, Paul Frees.
