    Default Singing Actors

    We know of movies where the actual actor's voices were dubbed in
    by real singers during songs. One of the best examples of that is of
    course Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady, where her average voice was
    dubbed by an almost operatic Julie Andrews kind of voice.
    But Audrey sang "Moon River" herself in "Breakfast at Tiffany's":

    Richard Chamberlain was in fine voice for the musical adaptation
    of Cinderella "The Slipper and the Rose" (co-starring Gemma Craven):

    I LOVE Lee Marvin's "I was born under a wandering star" from
    "Paint your wagon".

    I love Audrey's version of "Moon River" best. So did Mancini. He said she was the only person who really understood it. It was written for her.

    I actually downloaded it--it's beautiful.

    i love 'moon river'. i love audrey hepburn.
    i'm not crazy about 'my fair lady' though. the movie is ok and audrey is excellent in it but it's actually the music that bugs me.

    another type of movie altogether but samuel l. jackson does all his own singing in 'black snake moan' and he's amazing!
