John Mills had a very nice singing voice indeed, which he later demonstrated poignantly playing the old theater cat in a televised "Cats" performance. I wonder if he was considered for Henry Higgins back when "My Fair Lady" was cast, though he tended to be cast as more working class to middle class or military roles I think, at least based on things like Pip in "Great Expectations" and his role as Willie in David Lean's wonderful film of "Hobson's Choice". Perhaps he played Alfred Doolittle at some point?

I think Marti Webb sounds pretty terrific in "The Good Companions" in her numbers -- great belt in "Stage Struck" and she's very moving in her "Stage Door John" number as well.
