Turner Classic Movies will pay tribute to legendary film star and swimmer Esther Williams with a 24-hour marathon of films beginning at 7 tonight and continuing into Friday evening.
Williams passed away June 6 at the age of 91.
TCM’s tribute will feature 13 of Williams’ films, including her film debut in “Andy Hardy’s Double Life” (1942); her first starring vehicle, “Bathing Beauty” (1944); the colorful musical “Neptune’s Daughter” (1949); the biopic of swimmer Annette Kellerman, “Million Dollar Mermaid” (1952); the romantic comedy “Easy to Wed” (1946); and the Hawaii-set musical “Pagan Love Song” (1950).
A longtime friend of TCM, Williams served as one of the network’s first celebrity spokespeople and on-air hosts, according to a news release. In 1996, she sat down with Robert Osborne for the second of his extended interview specials, “Private Screenings.”
