Win Tickets To See “Voice of the King: The Bob Miller Story” With An Appearance By Miller

LOS ANGELES — Just a couple of days away from the premiere of filmmaker Charlie Minn’s new documentary on the career of the legendary Voice of the Kings, Bob Miller, Frozen Royalty is pleased to be able to offer readers a chance to win FOUR tickets to see the movie, Voice of the King: The Bob Miller Story, at the Regal Cinemas L.A. Live (across the street from Staples Center), on Saturday, December 6, 2014, at 5:00 PM.

The movie follows the Philadelphia Flyers/Kings game, starting at 1:00 PM, at Staples Center.

And there’s more…

If that date/time doesn’t fit your schedule, you might just want to clear your schedule because, in addition to getting to see the movie for free, the star of the film himself, Bob Miller, will host a question and answer session after that showing of the film. You won’t want to miss that!

But there’s a catch. First, you must be a Facebook and/or a Twitter user. Second, you’re going to have to do a little homework in order to win. Here’s what you’ll need to do to qualify and win:

For Facebook Users ONLY

1) Correctly answer the following question:

At first, Miller told filmmaker Charlie Minn that he didn’t want to do the film. But just before the Kings won the 2014 Stanley Cup, he finally agreed to do it. But Minn’s documentaries, all in the “true crime” genre, are a far cry from a film about a play-by-play announcer.

Noting the vast difference between Voice of the King and Minn’s other films, what did Miller tell Minn about that?

Submit your answer by leaving it as a comment below. Be sure to use your full name and a real e-mail address (if you’d like me to be able to connect with you if you win, which would probably be a good thing). Also provide the URL to your Facebook profile in your comment.

2) You must already “Like” the Frozen Royalty page on Facebook, or you must do so PRIOR to the contest deadline (see below). Frozen Royalty’s page on Facebook can be found at:

Answers must be posted below, NOT on Facebook, and you must provide the URL of the story from this web site where you found the answer.

3) Recommend Frozen Royalty’s Facebook page on your Facebook profile PRIOR to the contest deadline (see below).

For Twitter Users ONLY

1) Correctly answer the following question:

As Miller has said numerous times, former Los Angeles Lakers Hall of Fame play-by-play announcer, the late Chick Hearn hired him to become the Kings play-by-play announcer in 1973. Later in his career, Miller would have a hand in hiring someone. Name that person.

    There were way, way too many contest entries, so rather than post them all here, I’ll just give the correct answers and announce the winner…

    Question 1 (Facebook): At first, Miller told filmmaker Charlie Minn that he didn’t want to do the film. But just before the Kings won the 2014 Stanley Cup, he finally agreed to do it. But Minn’s documentaries, all in the “true crime” genre, are a far cry from a film about a play-by-play announcer.

    Noting the vast difference between Voice of the King and Minn’s other films, what did Miller tell Minn about that?

    Answer: “He’s done a lot of documentaries on disasters and murders, and I told him, ‘I don’t think I fit your plan here. I haven’t killed anybody,’” Miller joked.

    Question 2 (Twitter): As Miller has said numerous times, former Los Angeles Lakers Hall of Fame play-by-play announcer, the late Chick Hearn hired him to become the Kings play-by-play announcer in 1973. Later in his career, Miller would have a hand in hiring someone. Name that person.

    “Bob had a lot to do with the Kings hiring Nick Nickson,” said Minn, who noted that this is touched upon in the film. “Bob strongly suggested getting Nick on board.”

    And the winner is…Liza Ramirez, who will be contacted shortly with further details.

    Thank you to everyone who entered the contest!
