An Autobiography

Esther Williams, the legendary MGM swimming star, tells what it was like for an eighteen-year-old former swimming champion working at an exclusive Beverly Hills clothing store - and supporting her husband in medical school - to reluctantly answer the siren call of the most powerful movie studio in the world.

We see her shed the early wide-eyed innocence as she matriculates at what she affectionately called University MGM, that unique educational institution where reality was moulded on screen and off, where degrees were earned in glamour and sex appeal, and where those who had a certain something were painstakingly manufactured into idols of popular culture.

An Autobiography

Esther Williams, the legendary MGM swimming star, tells what it was like for an eighteen-year-old former swimming champion working at an exclusive Beverly Hills clothing store - and supporting her husband in medical school - to reluctantly answer the siren call of the most powerful movie studio in the world.

We see her shed the early wide-eyed innocence as she matriculates at what she affectionately called University MGM, that unique educational institution where reality was moulded on screen and off, where degrees were earned in glamour and sex appeal, and where those who had a certain something were painstakingly manufactured into idols of popular culture.

Whether speaking of her own marriages, divorces, and love affairs or telling tales about the legends of the studio era, Williams is acutely perceptive and always uncompromisingly honest. Like Esther Williams herself, 'The Million Dollar Mermaid' is fun, frank and totally entertaining.
