LOS ANGELES — If you haven’t heard of documentary filmmaker Charlie Minn before, you’re not alone. After all, he’s not one of the legends among Hollywood filmmakers.

Minn, who lives in New York and El Paso, Texas, isn’t well known in hockey circles, either. But he is currently in the Los Angeles area promoting his new film, Voice of the King: The Bob Miller Story. a documentary about the career of legendary Los Angeles Kings play-by-play announcer Bob Miller, which opens at the Regal Cinemas L.A. Live on December 5.

Despite the fact that he is not a big name Hollywood filmmaker, he is a prolific documentary filmmaker, focusing on the “true crime” genre, most notably on crimes that have not gotten a lot of media exposure.

EL SEGUNDO, CA — Here in the Los Angeles area, sports fans have been blessed with beautiful music during broadcasts of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Los Angeles Kings and the Los Angeles Lakers, not to mention the UCLA Bruins, Los Angeles Rams, and what was then the California Angels.

That “music” came from the broadcast booths for those teams, with the incredible voices of Dick Enberg, Chick Hearn, Bob Miller and Vin Scully behind the microphone—four of the finest play-by-play announcers to ever the hit the airwaves, “serenading” Southern California sports fans.

Enberg called UCLA basketball games, and called the play-by-play for the Angels and Rams. Hearn was the legendary voice of the Lakers, and Scully, another legend, is still going strong with the Dodgers.

Miller, 77, received the Foster Hewitt Memorial Award in 2000, which recognizes “…members of the radio and television industry who made outstanding contributions to their profession and the game during their career in hockey broadcasting,” making him a media honoree in the Hockey Hall of Fame.
