Esther Williams' autobiography is a wonderful read. To read about the choreography and tricks that went into making her movies is fantastic and insightful. She herself is just an interesting and strong willed woman who with no acting abilities became a very well recognized starlet amongst MGM's greats, I adore her and this book.

Ester Williams is one of my favorite actresses, as well as fashion icons. Her vintage inspired bathing suits are fabulous (and still sold to this day).
