WHat a walking Ken doll, with the same amounts of brains and as anatomically correct as one as well.

Is this news? I see nothing news worthy here. Maybe this should have been posted in the "internet" section. Or at a stretch "politics" as this seems a right wing dig at John Edwards.

Natalie Woods didn't sing any of "her" songs for West Side Story. that was performed by the very amazing and interesting Marni Nixon. she also sang for Audrey Hepburn's Eliza in My Fair Lady and for Deborah Kerr in The King and I. i just finished her memoir I Could Have Sung All Night which was kinda boring in a few parts but the parts with her movie singing in it were the highlights. she's still alive and performing all around the world.

The song was sung by Natalie Wood. And it's appropriate for a guy wo is that involved with his $400-per-haircut locks.

no, it wasn't. Natalie Woods merely lip-sync'd the lyrics during filming. period. there is positive, conclusive evidence that Marni Nixon, in fact, did all the singing for the movie. and not just from Ms. Nixon herself. it's a common misunderstanding but Natalie, sadly, couldn't hit those high notes at all. Natalie Wood is my all time favorite actress and even still, she did not sing any of the songs in the motion picture nor the soundtracks for West Side Story unless shown in documentary form.

you wrong, Marv. sorry!

What I meant was that it was NW's character who sang, rather than Rita Moreno's. But I accept the correction. :D
