Unfortunately, ms, I'm looking for something a little more difficult than that. Many actresses appeared in films with their current husbands. What I'm thinking of is a little more unique to these three actresses.


Hint: For each actress, look at her entire body of film work.

I was going to guess yesterday that Marni Nixon supplied the singing voices for them, but I could not find where Ms. Nixon dubbed for Ms. Leigh. I found Pepe, just now. The others are My Fair Lady and West Side Story. Is that it?

They all replaced actresses who were nominated for a Tony in the role in which the Hollywood actress played on screen.


Audrey Hepburn replaced Julie Andrews in My Fair Lady

Janet Leigh replaced Chita Rivera in Bye Bye Birdie

Natalie Wood replace Carol Lawrence in West Side Story

OK, the thread goes to Lana. Actresses whose singing was dubbed by Marni Nixon is a small enough universe that this answer cannot be rejected........ What I was shooting for was that Hepburn, Leigh, and Wood all did their own singing in at least one film, and were dubbed in at least one film. I figured that would be difficult.
