Marni Nixon has one of the world's best known singing voices, and she has played an integral role in the creation of some of the highest grossing films and soundtracks in movie history. Now, after six decades as a performer, her inspiring autobiography reveals both the singer and actress her fans have known and loved, as well as the woman behind the acclaimed performer.
Included in this memoir are her fights to receive credit on films she dubbed; her struggles for royalties for 'West Side Story,' with the help of Leonard Bernstein; her work in the classical music world with Igor Stravinsky, Aaron Copland, Pierre Boulez, Charles Ives, Arnold Schoenberg, and Zubin Mehta; as well as her two battles with breast cancer.
"Marni Nixon is the unacknowledged star of some of the greatest Hollywood musicals of all time. Those who loved Anna in 'The King and I,' Maria in 'West Side Story,' Eliza Doolittle in 'My Fair Lady,' and Grandmother Fa in 'Mulan' were responding to her wonderful voice and talent." - Roger Ebert
