Biography
Esther Williams (1921-2013) was a world-renowned swimming champion when she was spotted by an MGM talent scout in an aquacade. Hoping that their new discovery would surpass the popularity of 20th Century-Fox's skating queen Sonja Henie, MGM began grooming Williams for stardom completely refashioning her third film, the modest 1944 Red Skelton comedy Mister Bride, into the Technicolor super spectacular Bathing Beauty. For the next decade she starred in one musical comedy after another, warbling the Oscar-winning tune "Baby It's Cold Outside" in Neptune's Daughter (1949) and trading steps with Gene Kelly in Take Me Out to the Ballgame (1949). As her popularity soared--she was among the top ten box office stars in 1949 and 1950--MGM went out of its way to make her swimming sequences more complex and elaborate with each new picture.
