Time Out says
Celebrate the life of swimmer-turned-movie-star Esther Williams (August 8, 1921—June 6, 2013) by singing along with two famous musicals starring the Renaissance woman, Bathing Beauty and Take Me Out to the Ball Game. Watch as Williams makes monumental splashes and is chased by her fiancé’s music producer in Bathing Beauty; then head to the field to be serenaded with a home run performance by co-star Frank Sinatra in Take Me Out to the Ball Game. Williams shines in these double features, and the 50s never looked so appealing.
