Voice Actress
    (February 22, 1930-July 24, 2016)
    Birth name is Marni McEathron
    Provided vocals for the films 'Joan of Arc (1948),' 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953),' 'Dementia (1955),' 'The King and I (1955),' 'An Affair to Remember (1957),' 'West Side Story (1961),' 'My Fair Lady (1964),' 'Jack and the Beanstalk (1967)' and 'Mulan (1998)'
    Dubbed the performances of Marilyn Monroe, Deborah Kerr, Natalie Wood and Audrey Hepburn
    Her acting wasn't good enough to get anything but voice work in movies.
    She wasn't as attractive as the actresses she dubbed.
    In fact, she looked a bit like Kathy Griffin.
    She only got her first movie-dubbing job because the singer they had hired got killed.
    She wanted to be a great opera star, but is now just remembered as a movie-dubber.
    She toured with Liberace.
    She brags that her voice still sounds 'as young as ever,' but actually it doesn't.
    She is probably the most famous voice dubber.
    Her voice was pure and flexible.
    She sang the lead in some of the most popular movie musicals ever, and usually wasn't credited.
    Leonard Bernstein liked her work in his 'West Side Story' so much that he gave her part of his cut.
    She finally got to show her face on screen, as a nun in 'The Sound of Music.'
    In addition to movie work, she sang for classical composers like Igor Stravinsky.
    She went on to have a successful stage career.
