Name 10 Facts about this Movie

Recommended Posts

7-The one thing about this movie that virtually everyone has a problem with is that Marni Nixon's singing voice bears absolutely no resemblance to Audrey Hepburn's speaking voice. Even if you didn't know the background, it is very obviously not Audrey singing.

10. Most of Broadway's great song writing teams tried to make Pygmalion into a musical, including Rogers and Hammerstein, but they couldn't make it work. One of the reasons Lerner and Loewe were successful in their adaptation was their decision not to have Henry Higgins "sing" -- the sing-speaking Rex Harrison does (Rex was the original Higgins from London and Broadway) is not because Rex can't sing (just watch NIGHT TRAIN TO MUNICH--he can sing), but because that's what the character demanded. He went to a vocal coach to figure out how to make this "sing-speaking" work.


Next film, my all-time favorite:

2) Paul Douglas was slated to portray Jeff Sheldrake, but he died suddenly soon before shooting was to begin. A quick phone call by Wilder yielded MacMurray to replace him.
