I wish i had grew up in a different time, as I thought she was just gorgeous! Great actress!

I love Esther Williams! She sounds like a normal person in both her autobiography and her Private Screenings on TCM with Robert Osborne. In the Private Screenings interview, both Esther and June Allyson make it sound like their career was one big delightful accident and the film business was a big playground. Neither really went out of their way to become an actress like so many others did.
