Her new memoir, I Could Have Sung All Night, is being published this week. Nixon never became as famous as the actresses she worked with. But she is hoping her new book will set the record straight about her very recognizable voice. Nixon, 76, has had a career that defies categorization. She has performed on Broadway and in opera houses, hosted an Emmy Award-winning children's television show and is a well-regarded singing teacher in New York. Born in Southern California, Nixon had become a sought-after singer by the time she was a teenager.

The most celebrated "voice" in Hollywood speaks for herself!Everyone knows Marni Nixon...even if they think they don’t. One of the best-known and best-loved singing voices in the world, Nixon dubbed songs for Natalie Wood in West Side Story, Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady, and Deborah Kerr in The King and I. She was the voice of Hollywood’s leading ladies, arriving in filmland after a debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at 17 and continuing her career with Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, Charles Ives, Stephen Sondheim, Rogers and Hammerstein, and many others. Her inspiring autobiography reveals Nixon as a singer, an actress, and a woman fighting for artistic recognition. Today, a survivor of breast cancer, she works on Broadway and television’s Law & Order SVU, tours with her own stage show, and teaches master classes in voice. I Could Have Sung All Night reveals the woman behind the screen in a frank, funny biography that is as remarkable as the woman whose story it tells.

Marni Nixon's name has been known to me for years, but in a very limited way -- I knew she was the singing voice of Deborah Kerr in THE KING AND I, Natalie Wood in WEST SIDE STORY and Audrey Hepburn in MY FAIR LADY. I also knew she appeared onscreen as Sister Sophia in THE SOUND OF MUSIC. Beyond that, I knew nothing. Thus I figured this book would bore me to tears once I'd passed those portions of her life. Wrong! The woman has led a fascinating life, leading up to and following that period when she was "The Ghostess with the Mostes'," as someone dubbed her. True, there was a lot in the beginning about her grandparents and parents and early childhood that was perhaps less than absorbing. . .at least to me. But once she reached the point of doing extra work in films and then into the ghosting, and everything since, my interest never lessened. She's one of those people that I wish I could meet. . .and one who I wish could go on forever. A very enjoyable read from/by a woman who deserves to be better known!

This is the autobiography of legendary voice dubber Marni Nixon, who did the singing for Audrey Hepburn, Deborah Kerr, Natalie Wood and others in some classic Hollywood movies. Ms. Nixon's book reveals that she's done lots of other things in addition to being a "ghost" voice, including stints in opera, musical theater, and television. She is extremely candid in disclosing the ups and downs of both her professional and private lives, and the narrative flows smoothly. Her story is exciting, humorous, and well worth reading!

When Marni Nixon describes how she dubbed for "The King and I", "West Side Story", and "My Fair Lady", the book is a very interesting read. She even talks about the awkwardness of meeting Julie Andrews after Marni dubbed for Audrey Hepburn in "MFL". However, in writing about her family and others who are non-celebrities, the book bogs down. She doesn't bring the characters to life on the page. If you like a factual account, you will enjoy this book.

This marvelous memoir by the great movie "ghost" voice of Deborah Kerr (King & I),Audrey Hepburn (Fair Lady), and Natalie Wood (West Side Story) is a great read for anyone even remotely interested in vocal music, the theater, and the back-stage doings of Broadway and Hollywood. Gifted with absolute pitch, Ms. Nixon's bright soprano was heard in many phases of vocal music, from movies and Broadway to hyper-modern classical repertoire and full opera roles. She also had the ability to do any type of speech accent and to perfectly copy the vocal timbre of the person she was "ghosting." Sadly, she would remain virtually unknown to a large majority of the general public. Perhaps this autobiography will help rectify that situation.

The book takes one through her childood involvement in music as a violinist and chorister from a musical family; her entry and climb in professional music circles; and her later battles to receive credit and remuneration for her movie "ghosting" work. It also deals with the problems that the music business poses for marriage and everyday life, and documents her two courageous battles with breast cancer.

I would have liked to have at least a selective discography of her own work in the classical and show-tune fields, but one can't have everything.

All told, a very enjoyable work. Highly recommended for musicians and music fans.

Very enjoyable reading. There are many stories of Hollywood in the 40s to the present. A friend of mine is mentioned in the book which added to my personal interest. The book is written in a fashion that makes it difficult to put down. It held my interest from beginning to end.

Bought for my Mom so can't review the text but the book was not as expected. There was no sleeve and the book smelled very musty. Arrived quickly but wish the seller would have specified no cover and a bit stinky.
