Million Dollar Baby

I am sure that many people went to view this film to see the acting of Hilary Swank as a 32 year old boxer. A lot of you would have gone because you were die hard Eastwood fans. I went because I wanted to hear the voice of Morgan Freeman. His voice as Red hypnotized and captivated me many years ago in Shawshank Redemption. It did not fail to do so again. I can’t count the number of times when I am feeling down and out with no end in sight, I hear Red saying in my head, “I hope I can make it across the border...

And FINALLY he won an Oscar! I have always loved his voice too. Something about him, he just has so much integrity.

For those of you who missed the Oscars, his speech went something like this.....
"Thank you Clint, thank you Hilary, and thank you Academy"
