What connects this maybe could be murderess Madeleine Smith
who maybe could be poisoned her now-surplus-to-requirements wouldn’t-take-no-for-an-answer boyfriend Emile L’Anglier with arsenic
which she said she had purchased as a cosmetic intending thereby to maintain a blooming complexion and an appearance of exuberant health with Mary Poppins is that after all the infamy and brouhaha of the trial she understandably relocated to London from Glasgow, took watercolour lessons, was courted by her teacher, a Mr Wardle, married him, and then became embroiled in socialist politics, where she hobnobbed with George Bernard Shaw, who, hearing her remarkable story, took his coffee from her “to no ill effect”, as he remarked at the time, this being a few years before he wrote Pygmalion, which was the basis of My Fair Lady, the 1964 film in which Audrey Hepburn was cast, infamously, over the obvious choice of Julie Andrews, who had been playing Eliza on stage between 1956 and 1959. The point here was that Julie could sing (like an angel) and Audrey couldn’t (not like an angel anyhow). So they had to get Marni Nixon to dub the singing for Audrey, which I had no idea about until years after I saw the film. Not surprising, really – when any Marni-sung tunes were on the radio the dj would say “that was Audrey Hepburn” and Marni’s name was nowhere to be found on the album sleeve either.
They liked to keep very quiet about the dubbing, even though exposing this frankly deceptive procedure was one of the key plot points in Singin’ in the Rain, everybody’s other favourite musical.
Ain’t no justice in this damn world, as Emile L’Anglier might have said if he hadn’t died horribly on 23rd March 1857.
