In her first M-G-M lead role, Esther Williams swims her way to stardom as a girls' school aquatic instructor who is wooed by songwriter Red Skelton, in "Bathing Beauty" (1944). Basil Rathbone co-stars; songs include "Tico-Tico," "Bim, Bam, Boom." Then, socialite Williams sues newspaperman Van Johnson after a less-than-flattering article is run about her, in "Easy to Wed" (1946). Lucille Ball and Keenan Wynn also star; songs include "Come Closer to Me," "Continental Polka." "On an Island with You" (1948) finds Hollywood star Williams on location in Hawaii and wooed by smooth sailor Peter Lawford. With Ricardo Montalban, Jimmy Durante; includes the songs "If I Were You," "Wedding Samba." Next, Williams plays a bathing suit designer who must fend off the advances of Latin lothario Montalban, in "Neptune's Daughter" (1949), co-starring Skelton and featuring the Oscar-winning tune "Baby, It's Cold Outside." And small-town girl Williams tries to win fame by swimming the English Channel, in "Dangerous When Wet" (1953), with Fernando Lamas and a cameo by Tom and Jerry. 8 1/2 hrs. total. Standard; Soundtrack: English; interview; bonus shorts; outtakes; more. Five-disc set.
