Thus, I decided to revisit this weekend one of her many successful trips off the big screen diving board. While not her most famous picture, Neptune’s Daughter (1949) seems tailor-made for the seaside beauty. Her character Eve Barrett is just a local city swimming athlete with big dreams for her amateur career until she gets picked from obscurity for her features by a local businessman to become the face and partner of swimming suit line. A story about a swimmer who became a symbol of marketing glitz? Plus, it stars, as her romantic interest, Ricardo Montalbán aka KHANNNNNNN!!!!!!
