Post Dubbing
I read something about children being dubbed in the Sound of Music movie and I'm wondering who they are. I could google it but I'm being a lazy bum and since this forum is hardly used... Why not?

not sure about the kids.
i know Christopher Plummer was dubbed in 2 of his songs and Peggy Wood although a famous operetta star in the 1920s and 30s had lost her voice by the time they filmed SOM and they were forced to dub her after she was signed for the role.

Yeah...the dubbing on "Climb Ev'ry Mountain" is crap!

That's too bad!

PEGGY WOOD WAS DUBBED?!?!?!? That's not really her singing? You just ruined that movie and that song for me.

I had never heard that the kids were dubbed. I know there were other kids singing in the chorus numbers, just to fill out the songs, to make them sound better. Oh wait! Wasn't Kurt's high note in "So Long, Farewell" dubbed in by Charmain Carr's little sister?

^At that period of time, dubbing was grossly over-used! Look at West Side Story! If you have the anniversary edition, you will see that the guy that played Riff in the movie actually sounded better than his dubbing!

It really is too bad that he got shut out of singing those songs! He has a beautiful voice! I wonder if they have clips of his singing on the anniversary DVD that I have yet to watch!

I've had the anniversary edition of SOM sitting on my shelf because I haven't had much time lately, but can anyone tell me if there's footage of Christopher Plummer actually singing the songs he was dubbed on?

Just curious...
