Added DiffLines:

** In ''Film/DrNo'', the decision was made to have Bond work for the fictional MI-7 rather than the real MI-6 after filming was completed. Because of this, Bernard Lee had to shoehorn "seven" into the space where he said "six" as M lectures Bond over his choice of weapon.

Added DiffLines:

* All of the callers to Series/{{Frasier}}'s [[ShowWithinAShow radio show]] were celebrity guests whose lines were dubbed in after filming. On set the lines were usually read by Creator/ArleenSorkin who is married to one of the producers.


* On ''Series/{{Jeopardy}}'', Creator/AlexTrebek often re-records his reading of a clue in post if he stumbles over a word, but no lip-synching is involved because the screen usually shows the text of the clue rather than his face. This was taken to its logical extreme in a week of episodes in 2015, where ''all'' of the clues were re-recorded in post due to Alex having a cold at the time of taping that left him sounding very rough. A disclaimer was added at the start of episode indicating as such.

Added DiffLines:

* Significant portions of Film/DeepBlueSea had to be re-dubbed because of an outbreak of crickets on the underwater base set.


* There were also cases of ADR redubbing during post-production on WesternAnimation/ThomasAndTheMagicRailroad, especially at the time during post-production where PT Boomer was cut out of the plot, so some lines had to be redubbed by the actors due to referencing the deleted character and/or the original plot.

This is where an actor is called back to do the lines again, usually because their dialogue was not recorded satisfactorily on location . Officially known as "automated dialog replacement" (ADR).

* One episode of Creator/TomScott's ''Things You Might Not Have Known'' series, "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKcqyREyejo Nearly Everything You Hear in the Movies is Fake]]," discusses this trope (as well as TheCoconutEffect). Scott also throws in some PaintingTheMedium to illustrate the difference: Everything before 0:47 (save for the end) in the video was recorded on location, while everything after was dubbed over later.

''However'', the video grossly over-exaggerates ADR's presence in film, which got corrected by several post-production workers in the comments section. Tom now considers the video an [[invoked]] OldShame for bad information, and has since unlisted it.


* When ''Series/TheAvengers'' switched from videotape to film in season 4, and Emma Peel became John Steed's new partner in crime, the show's shooting became more flexible: For on-location scenes outdoors, they would be shot mute, with the dialogue being rerecorded by the original actors in post-production (as was the norm for British television at the time).

* In ''[[Film/{{Carrie1976}} Carrie]]'' (1976), the boy on the bicycle shouting "Creepy Carrie!!!

The fun part? Now the actor gets to do the line with the intended emotions while lip-syncing to the video footage of themselves. Alternatively, the actor in question may not be available or the role calls for a different voice from that of the on-set performance. Requiring another actor cast to fill in as either a soundalike to the original, or to dub over the original if deemed unsatisfactory. Or if the actor was simply a reference placeholder, a common practice for people operating puppets, acting in bulky costumes, or if they are playing TheFaceless.
