My Fair Lady - My Fair Lady (film) - Netflix
My Fair Lady is a 1964 American musical film adapted from the Lerner and
Loewe eponymous stage musical based on the 1913 stage play Pygmalion by
George Bernard Shaw. With a screenplay by Alan Jay Lerner and directed
by George Cukor, the film depicts a poor Cockney flower seller named
Eliza Doolittle who overhears an arrogant phonetics professor, Henry
Higgins, as he casually wagers that he could teach her to speak “proper”
English, thereby making her presentable in the high society of Edwardian
London. The film stars Audrey Hepburn and Rex Harrison as Eliza
Doolittle and Henry Higgins respectively, with Stanley Holloway, Gladys
Cooper and Wilfrid Hyde-White in supporting roles. A critical and
commercial success, it won eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture,
Best Actor, and Best Director. In 1998, the American Film Institute
named it the 91st greatest American film of all time.
My Fair Lady - Dubbing - Netflix
Hepburn's singing was judged inadequate, and she was dubbed by Marni
Nixon, who sang all songs except “Just You Wait”, where Hepburn's voice
was left undubbed during the harsh-toned chorus of the song and Nixon
sang the melodic bridge section. Some of Hepburn's original vocal
performances for the film were released in the 1990s, affording
audiences an opportunity to judge whether the dubbing was necessary.
Less well known is the dubbing of Jeremy Brett's songs (as Freddy) by
Bill Shirley. Harrison declined to pre-record his musical numbers for
the film, explaining that he had never talked his way through the songs
the same way twice and thus could not convincingly lip-sync to a
playback during filming (as musical stars had, according to Jack L.
Warner, been doing for years. “We even dubbed Rin-Tin-Tin”). George
Groves decided to use a wireless microphone, the first such use during
filming of a motion picture. The sound department earned an Academy
Award for its efforts.
