Marni Nixon: Secret Ghost Singer for Hollywood



[Source] It was a tight industry secret back in the day -- that another woman was the singing voice of Natalie Wood in West Side Story, Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady, and other stars in Hollywood films. Here's a short interview with Marni Nixon, who tells us she was threatened with never working again if she were to let the secret be known! "The studio -- 20th Century Fox -- called me, and they said that if anyone ever knew that I did any part of a dubbing, they would see to it that I wouldn't work in town again."

Compare Marni's singing with Audrey Hepburn's own voice here and here.
