"Gypsy" is a 1962 musical made by Warner Bros., about the life of striptease artist Gypsy Rose Lee. It was produced and directed by Mervyn LeRoy. The screenplay by Leonard Spigelgass was based on the stage musical ' with music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and book by Arthur Laurents, which was in turn loosely based on Lee's book '. The cinematography was by Harry Stradling, the costume design by Orry-Kelly, Bill Gaskin and Howard Shoup.

The film stars Rosalind Russell, Natalie Wood and Karl Malden.

Background and production

Original "Kiss Me, Kate" cast member Lisa Kirk dubbed Rosalind Russell's singing voice, but Russell's attempts at singing were rediscovered on scratchy acetate discs and recently made available as supplements on the CD reissue of the film soundtrack. Rosalind Russell's own singing voice, however, can be heard in the film, during the "Rose's Turn" number, for at least half of the song, in "Mr. Goldstone" and the cut numbers "You'll Never Get Away From Me (Duet)" and "Together Wherever We Go".

Natalie Wood provided her own singing in this film; in "West Side Story", her singing was performed by Marni Nixon.

It had been hoped that the film would star Judy Garland as Mama Rose and Ann-Margret as Gypsy, but they were both involved in other projects.

Awards and nominations

The film was nominated for three Academy Awards, for Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design and Best Music Scoring. It was also nominated for six Golden Globe Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress (Natalie Wood), Best Actor (Karl Malden) and Most Promising Newcomer (Paul Wallace) and won the Best Actress award for Rosalind Russell. Russell had won the same award the previous year for her role in "A Majority of One".
