Now in paperback! The most celebrated "voice" in Hollywood speaks for herself
Everyone knows Marni Nixon...even if they think they don’t. One of the best-loved singing voices in the world, Nixon was the un-credited singing voice for Natalie Wood in West Side Story, Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady, and Deborah Kerr in The King and I. She made her debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at 17 and continued her career with Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland, Charles Ives, Stephen Sondheim, Rogers and Hammerstein, and many others. Her inspiring autobiography, packed with anecdotes from six decades of performing, reveals Nixon as a singer, as an actress, as a breast-cancer survivor, and as a woman fighting for artistic recognition.
