Esther Williams, 91, Aquatic Movie Star (And Godmother Of Synchronized Swimming)
"With her beauty, sunny personality and background as a champion swimmer, Williams shot to stardom in the 1940s in the 'aqua musical,' an odd sub-genre of films that became an enormous hit with the moviegoing mainstream, fanned popular interest in synchronized swimming and turned Williams into Hollywood's Million Dollar Mermaid."
