Wood Sings West Side Story Finally
Fans of seminal musical WEST SIDE STORY are finally being given the chance to hear lead star NATALIE WOOD's real singing voice.
Producers of the 1961 multi-OSCAR winning film used the over-dubbed vocals of MARNIE NIXON - who also replaced AUDREY HEPBURN and DEBORAH KERR's efforts in MY FAIR LADY and THE KING AND I respectively - for the cinematic version of the musical.
However, a special DVD edition of the flick is now being released with Wood's singing talents restored - and sources reassure fans they'll be impressed with the results.
One insider says, "Marnie sang beautifully but fans of Natalie are in for a real treat."24/04/2003 13:45
