The star of the “water musical” of the 1940s and 1950s Esther Williams was a wonderful swimmer with a strong character. For her exceptional swimming skills and acting talent, she was once called American Mermaid in her youthful years. Esther also tried herself as a screenwriter and was fond of creating stories full of inspiration.

Esther was strenuously engaged in swimming, and won three US championships in Seattle, Miami, and Washington before the World War. When in 1940 she published her photos in a swimsuit, the photographers immediately noticed her and invited to take part in various water shows on the beaches of San Francisco. This was her first entry into show business, however, she wasn’t excited about it.

Esther has always considered herself only a swimmer, and from time to time she refused the roles that were offered to her. Esther was supposed to be the successor of the tradition of sports in the movies, but these plans didn’t come into life by her own decision. The Mermaid of Hollywood first appeared on the big screen in 1942 in The Double Life of Andy Hardy.

Esther later starred in a number of films like  Siegfried Madness, and even won several non-competitive awards. In 1954, her last filming experience was the creation of the script for the film Athena.

Esther was called the Hollywood Mermaid for her skillful body and wonderful tricks on water. The actress was always fond of swimming, that’s why she kept herself in shape and almost never got sick. Esther also stated that the film career never interested her as much as her favorite sport.
