Movie Info

Brought up in a family of swimmers, an Arkansas girl (Esther Williams) decides to risk crossing the English Channel after a shady promotions man (Jack Carson) pressures her (just to drum up sales for his vitamins). With the encouragement of a champagne salesman (Fernando Lamas)--who rescued her while she was practicing--she just might be able to do it. Animated cat-and-mouse team Tom & Jerry make a notable appearance swimming with Williams.
