1964: Dubbed out of ‘My Fair Lady’


Playing Eliza Doolittle in the 1964 movie “My Fair Lady” was one of Hepburn’s most controversial roles. Many people wanted the part to go to Julie Andrews, who had appeared in the Broadway version. Hepburn’s singing in the film was dubbed by singer Marni Nixon, and the actress revealed later that she would not have taken the part if she had known that producer Jack Warner did not want her to sing.
