I read her autobiography The Million Dollar Mermaid, which she wrote together with Digby Diehl.
It is great! Miss Williams is really really REALLY outspoken and very honest. She doesn't hide her own faults, which I think is really admirable.
There are 30 pages with pictures in it, some are rare private photos - all black-and-white.
There is a lot juicy stuff to find in this book. Yes, this lady talks about sex - and some great gossip. Read about L. B. Mayer's tantrums, Johnny Weismuller making "advances" to poor Miss Williams and her first acid trip - suggested by Cary Grant! And, yes, you may learn a lot about bathing suits.
- Side effects: You may get the urge to buy an Esther Williams swimsuit - as I did. (I love it!!) and you'll probably will swim a lot more.. :")
And here an Esther Williams quote, to think about:
Well, how about you?
