Yeah! They all were nominated for their role in a Broadway musical, but the film role went to someone else...

Gwen Verdon--Sweet Charity (Shirley MacLaine)

Julie Andrews--My Fair Lady (Audrey Hepburn)

Barbara Harris--On a Clear Day.. (Streisand)

Mary Martin--Sound of Music (Julie Andrews) & South Pacific (Mitzi Gaynor)

 

Well, Princess got the Tony part, but Terrence got the film link..your thread, Terrence1

Azure, that's a very good guess.  It's not the one I had in mind, but it certainly fits.  Go ahead with  another question,

Well, Azure, since you asked, the answer I had in mind is that they all were married to band leaders.  Still an open thread.
