America's Mermaid

My movie preferences are highly influenced by the seasons, so it should be no surprise that warmer weather and sunshine makes me long for Esther Williams. There only was and ever will be one Esther Williams. Isn't it a wonderful piece of film history that made a beautiful swimmer and diver into a movie star?

Many of her films are nostalgic delight, but at the moment Take Me Out to the Ball Game with Gene Kelly and Frank Sinatra seems most appropriate.
