Dubbing Vocals in Hollywood Musicals
Dubbing is a post-production process used in filmmaking and video production in which additional or supplementary recordings are lip-synced and "mixed" with original production sound to create the finished soundtrack. Hollywood musicals have a long history of employing professional vocalists to dub the singing voices of actors and actresses who were hired mainly for the acting ability and box office appeal. During this program we will have a chance to view several prominent examples and watch an extended interview with Marni Nixon whose singing voice took the place of such prominent stars as Deborah Kerr, Natalie Wood, and Audrey Hepburn.
