One MGM musical of the time launched a career that flourished for the balance of the decade A champion swimmer and a tall, strikingly pretty woman, Esther Williams had played small roles in two MGM films when she was starred in "Bathing Beauty." She played a swimming teacher at a girls' school whose husband (Red Skelton) enrolls at the school to be near her...
The plot was merely an excuse for knockabout antics by Skelton and especially for Williams' aquacades The pattern was fixed for the rest of the series of popular light musicals she starred in: Williams as a smiling mermaid moving balletically underwater to the strains of a pleasing melody
Bathing Beauty's finale is a lavish water spectacle with the star as the focal point of intricate underwater formations
