Champion swimmer-turned-movie star Esther Williams is Julie, an entertainer at Florida’s Cypress Gardens who secretly loves her infuriating boss, Ray (frequent co-star Van Johnson) and decides to make him jealous by flirting with charming singer Barry Gordon (Tony Martin). A quintessential example of Williams’s unique “aqua musical” genre, Easy to Love features delightful songs, a sassy and confident performance from its captivating leading lady, and stunning Busby Berkeley setpieces, including a remarkable seven-minute-long water-skiing finale.
