Am I the only one, BTW, who didn't know she was Lorenzo Lamas' stepmother?

How can you find someone 'Not Esther Williams'?
 
2013-06-06 08:33:44 PM  
I'll be fapping at half mast tonight.

I liked the "sync or swim" headline better.

All kidding aside, RIP, Esther - it is quite fitting you leave us on D-Day.  Salute to one-each hot babe.

So no joke, my name is Esther Williams. This has been a very creepy day for me.
 
2013-06-06 09:04:38 PM  
Damn, damn, DAMN!! ....Oh, wrong Esther.
 
2013-06-06 09:07:55 PM  
Wow she was absolutely stunning.

"Every thing is coming up roses" was my favorite.

I've read her autobiography.  Not only was she beautiful she was smart.

The most beautiful woman I've ever seen.  Maybe the greatest compliment to her beauty is that few, if any of her movies are well written.  Her looks and the spectacle of her artistry that was tied to them, had to carry a lot of clunky scripts and that they did, year after year.

She was also in the right place at the exact right time.  Only post-war Metro could have built an incomparable art form upon her gifts. But not without her dedication and willingness to work harder than any pretty faced star has since.

She was an original and no one ever again attempted to do what she did.  She deserves to be long remembered.

Even her most famous/popular movie, Million Dollar Mermaid, was utter shiate. The stunts and production were stunning... but everything else was utter hack.

I will reread I Smell Esther Williams in her honor.

I was going to, anyway.

Here she is in Dangerous When Wet, swimming with Tom & Jerry.

yes, you dumb-ass;
i at least thought she was his real mom, but it's Arlene Dahl

And she had a damned fine breast stroke

You are a very bad man.

/I was going to make that joke!
 
2013-06-07 01:32:22 AM  
The worst part is that she never got to see herself parodied in a Mel Brooks movie.
 
2013-06-07 01:47:19 AM  
Will she get a burial at sea?

Yeah, but now you get to go around saying "The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated" for the next couple of months.

Also makes a really kick-assed excuse to miss work.

Haliburton Cummings: awesome subby...

+1000 for the indirect Vigoda reference


Vigoda reference is REALLY stretching it.  It's Luca Brasi that sleeps with the fishes, not Tessio.

mialynneb: Wow she was absolutely stunning.


Yeah, she sure was. Very radiant and quite classy.

I watched a lot of her movies growing up because my stepfather loves classic movies.  She was beautiful, talented and smart.  RIP, awesome lady.
