Esther Williams:

Million Dollar Mermaid (Thorndike Paperback Bestsellers) - Paperback

ISBN: 0786223618

[SR: 2350569], Paperback, [EAN: 9780786223619], Large Print, Thorndike Press, Thorndike Press, Book, [PU: Thorndike Press], Thorndike Press, Her big movies are hard to find these days, and her name doesn't evoke the fan recognition awarded fellow MGM graduates Lana Turner and Ava Gardner, yet for more than a decade during Hollywood's age d'or Esther Williams was one of the studio's most bankable leading ladies. An American beauty and swimming champ, she was hired at MGM in 1941 at age 18, and from then on starred in two or three thinly plotted "swimming musicals" a year--films with titles likeNeptune's Daughter, Million Dollar Mermaid, Easy to Love, and Take Me Out to the Ball Game. Her inevitable role was the pin-up you could pin up at home, and it seems to have reflected her offstage personality too. Her long (400 pages) memoir is not always a miracle of narrative, but it includes a wealth of juicy gossip: Louis B.Mayer's rolling-on-the-floor tantrums; Gene Kelly's verbal cruelty on the set of Take Me Out to the Ball Game; her three failed marriages, including a long, draining one to Fernando Lamas; Lana Turner's name for Mayer ("Daddy"); Johnny Weismuller's backstage pursuit of her (naked); her own heat for Victor Mature ("unleashed"); and the LSD she tried in 1959 on Cary Grant's recommendation.Like so many other as-told-to books, the memories often feel self-serving, and there are plywood sentences even Lana Turner would choke on delivering. Disappointingly, Williams rarely shares what went on behind her lowered eyes and those buoyant cheekbones. --Lyall Bush, 270437, Actors & Actresses, 268003, Film, Television & Music, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 268083, Women, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 270436, Biographies, 270437, Actors & Actresses, 270438, Directors, 270433, Film, 73, Music, Stage & Screen, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 280209, Women, 280199, Biographies, 52, Young Adult, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 5346492031, Performing Arts, 280199, Biographies, 52, Young Adult, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books
