We all know Morgan Freeman for his famously unforgettable voice. In one scene of the 1989 movie Glory, Freeman’s character John Rawlins uses his great voice to speak to a group of newly-liberated slave children. If you look closely at the scene, you might notice that one of the children is wearing a digital watch.
