Performed in a concert run ('The Voice of Hollywood') that toured the US. [June 2003]


Replaced Joan Roberts as Heidi Schiller (who sings "One More Kiss") in the Broadway revival of Stephen Sondheim's "Follies" [May 2001]


" Her last singing voice on film was as the grandmother in the animated feature Mulan (1998).


"Appearing very sporadically on the small screen, Marni appeared on such programs as "The Mothers-in-Law" (as herself), appeared in a filmed TV record of an off-Broadway musical entitled Taking My Turn (1984) and was featured in the romantic comedy film I Think I Do (1997) and made a final visual appearance on an episode of "Law & Order: SVU.


Has appeared in one film with Julie Andrews: The Sound of Music (1965). She also provided Eliza Doolittle's singing voice for Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady (1964) a role originated on the stage by Andrews.


"Providing the voice of the geese in Disney's Mary Poppins (1964), Marni finally appeared on screen in the box-office musical The Sound of Music (1965) starring Julie Andrews, who physically resembles Marni. The role is a minor one, however, and she is only given a couple of ensemble scenes and solo lines in "How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?" as a singing nun.


Provided the singing voice for Natalie Wood in West Side Story (1961). She also was Deborah Kerr's singing voice in both An Affair to Remember (1957) and the musical classic King and I, The (1956).


Marni's vocal career in films dissolved by the mid 1960s, but she continued on with concerts and in symphony halls, while billing herself as "The Voice of Hollywood" in one-woman cabaret shows. Throughout the years, she has played on the legit stage, including the lead roles in "The King and I" and "The Sound of Music," and in her matronly years has been seen as Fraulein Schneider in "Cabaret," and in the musicals "Follies" and "70 Girls 70.

Married three times, twice to musicians, one of her husbands, Ernest Gold, by whom she had three children, was a film composer and is best known for his Academy Award-winning epic Exodus (1960).


Kerr's voice once again in the classic tearjerker An Affair to Remember (1957). From there she went on to make Natalie Wood and Audrey Hepburn sound incredibly good with such classic songs as "Tonight" and "Wouldn't It Be Loverly.


"Loverly" soprano Marni Nixon has ensured herself a proper place in film history although most moviegoers would not recognize her if they passed her on the street. But if you heard her, that might be a horse of a different color. Marni is one of those unsung heroes (or should I say "much sung" heroes) whose incredible talents were given short shrift at the time. For those who think film superstars such as Deborah Kerr, Natalie Wood, and Audrey Hepburn possessed not only powerhouse dramatic talents but amazing singing voices as well. . . think again. Kerr's Anna in King and I, The (1956), Natalie's Maria in West Side Story (1961), and Audrey's Eliza in My Fair Lady (1964) were all dubbed by the amazing Marni Nixon, and nowhere in the credits will you find that fact.


In 1955, the singer contracted to dub Deborah Kerr in King and I, The (1956) was killed in a car accident in Europe and a replacement was needed. Marni was hired. . . and the rest is history. Much impressed, the studios brought her in to "ghost" Ms.


Marni made her Broadway musical debut in 1954 in a show that lasted two months but nothing came from it.


Children with Ernest Gold: Andrew Gold, Martha Gold Carr (b. July 22, 1953), and Melanie Gold.


During the war era, she appeared uncredited in the musicals Born to Sing (1942) and The Bashful Bachelor (1942) and later voiced one of the singing flowers in the Disney film Alice in Wonderland (1951).


She was born Marni McEathron on February 22, 1930, in Altadena, California and a child actress. Once a soloist with the Roger Wagner Chorale in the beginning, she trained in opera. Possessing a versatile voice for pop music and easy standards as well, she not only sang for Arnold Schönberg and Igor Stravinsky, but also recorded light songs.
