Audience Reviews for Million Dollar Mermaid


Esther Williams is the goddess of the 'swmming muscial"...of course she is the only actress to make them. Great muscial numbers and a very good plot.

Most amazing performance by Esther Williams. It would have to be, she practically broke her neck making this.
