Meet Alexander Scourby, a celebrated actor renowned for his roles alongside Hollywood legends like Rita Hayworth and Glenn Ford. Born in 1913 in Brooklyn, New York, he is best known for his role as Mike Lagana in The Big Heat (1953). His face and his soothing, baritone voice were recognizable and celebrated in American pop culture for much of the 20th century. While his film work did contribute to his legacy, it wasn’t what Scourby considered his most important work.

Alexander Scourby’s Proudest Achievement: Talking Books for the Blind

While his acting career soared, Scourby found profound fulfillment in a unique endeavor that leveraged his soothing, signature voice – bringing literature to life for those with visual impairments.

Described as having “the greatest voice ever recorded,” Scourby narrated over 400 books for the American Foundation for the Blind Talking Books program, including masterpieces like Homer’s Iliad and Tolstoy’s War and Peace. He also recorded a celebrated treasury of British and American poetry as an LP titled A Golden Treasury of Poetry. These resources changed the way English-speaking blind people could experience classic literature and poetry.

Scourby had his sights set on the most impactful book in the world, however – the King James Bible.

The King James Bible As It Has Never Been Heard Before

Perhaps Scourby’s most monumental achievement was his complete narration of the Bible. Scourby was the first person in the world to record the entire King James Bible on long-play records in the 1950s.

It took over four years of meticulous effort to ensure clarity and precision for visually impaired listeners. The end product, called The Talking Bible, consisted of 169 LP records that played nearly 85 hours of audio!

Completed in 1953, Alexander Scourby’s Talking Bible was among the first audio resources for blind and visually impaired listeners who longed to experience the Bible in a format they could enjoy daily.
