I am a huge fan of old movies, so you can bet your bottom dollar that I was excited when I discovered this site! The site takes clips from old movies and restores the actor’s real singing voice to the scene. You’ll also find they’ve also included alternate tracks of scenes, or restored deleted lines. It’s really cool!
I stumbled across this site while trying to find a clip from the Singing in the Rain, with Gene Kelly and Debbie Reynolds. The movie is an all time favorite of my sister and I, and I wanted to cheer her up with a clip. Then I discovered that they didn’t let her sing all of her own parts!
So after that I decide to check out some of the other videos, and when I stumbled onto Ava Gardner’s “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man of Mine” I knew I had to share this with you. I grew up on the soundtrack of the Show Boat, so I was shocked when I saw the movie and it wasn’t her singing, but now thanks to the miracle of technology I can!
On the Main Page you’ll find a set of featured videos, but if you truck on over to the Videos section you’ll find even more! This site is a real gem, not only do you get hear the real voices of the performers but most of the videos have information about what you’re seeing, sometimes from the actor themselves.
Check it out!
