Profile Bio Text
Esther Jane Williams (b. August 8, 1921 or 1922) is a retired United States competitive swimmer and movie star, famous for her musical films that featured elaborate performances with swimming and diving.
Williams was born in Inglewood, California to Bula Myrtle Gilpin and Louis Stanton Williams. She was enthusiastic about swimming in her youth. She was National AAU champion in the 100 meter freestyle. Williams went to Hollywood, where she quickly became a popular star of the 1940s and 1950s. Her brother, Stanton Williams, also had a brief acting career during the 1920s before his untimely death while still a teenager.
She appeared with swimming star Johnny Weismuller in Billy Rose`s "Aquacade" during the San Francisco World`s Fair, 1939-41, where she first attracted attention from Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer scouts, as she noted in her autobiography. She also had to fend off the amorous attentions of Weismuller, whom she said acted as if he were Tarzan on and off the screen.
A close dear friend of the late June Allyson.
