Voice 26 – Jackie Kennedy

Thanks to Roger for this suggestion. Being a Brit, I can’t access the video on Hulu, so thought I’d hunt it down on YouTube. Not only is she just about one of the most soothing people there have ever been with an aristocratic American accent that has all but died out now, but the film also has crackly old school background noise. It’s also interesting to hear Kennedy, who, like most at the time would have been, is evidently unsure quite how to deal with speaking and appearing on television. There’s something endearingly awkward and self-conscious about it all. Soothing voice heaven.
