Classic Movie Star Love: Esther Williams

Hello Everyone,
To kick off Swim Week today's post is going to be all about hollywood's mermaid, Esther Williams.

Esther Williams was a competitive swimmer who became a movie star for MGM. She did several movies which showcased her swimming abilities. My favorite movie of hers was Million Dollar Mermaid.

When I heard that she passed a few weeks ago, I was so sad. Watching her movies or any other 1940's MGM movie, always reminds me of my summers with my grandparents. I spent almost all my summers with them, who not only took me swimming but introduced me to these types of amazing movies.

I will end this post with a quote from Esther Williams (which I think sums up her affect on movie audience's perfectly).

"It appeared as if I had invited the audience into the water with me, and it conveyed the sensation that being in there was absolutely delicious." -Esther Williams (source)
