Ahoy hoy!

Today I introduce to you the sister of Anchors Aweigh....
Skirts Ahoy! 1952

Starring the wonderful Esther Williams along side is Joan Evans and Vivian Blaine. The story is about 3 women who join the Navy and while in boot camp one of the ladies goes on the hunt for a man. Again, lovely costumes, and I just love Esther Williams in the swimming scenes.

Teaching the gals how to swim
Publicity shot of all the ladies.
The movie is very light and is funny in ways it wasn't back then. I don't really know how to explain it. Let's call it escapism, shall we?
It's trivia time!
Esther Williams was a champion swimmer before being discovered by MGM.
She was married 4 times.
As of August 8 of this year, she is 90 years old!!!

Well that's it for now. Happy November everyone!



  1. Wow 90! I didn't even know she was still alive.

  2. Why don't they make films like this anymore. x hivenn

  3. @pinktutu72- I think she will live to be 100 just like Bob Hope!
    JazzyE- I know right? I miss the mystery and glamour of a star, I dont want to see them taking trash out or in sweatpants.
