Just got a note from a friend that tonight (Tuesday, Oct. 6 2009), Turner Classic Movies will show 1953's Easy to Love at 8 pm. Internet Movie Database has this synopsis of the plot:
"Set against the background of Florida's Cypress Gardens, and featuring many stretches of water carnival-ballet numbers, the slight story line finds swimming star Julie Hallerton (Esther Williams) in love with Ray Lloyd (Van Johnson), her boss and the creator and operator of the operation. She stays mostly wet, while he stays mostly disinterested in anything other than the cash receipts."
A behind the scenes description is available at the TCM website.
