Neptune’s Daughter is a neat concoction of breezy, light entertainment. It combines comedy, songs and dances into an amusing froth.

Star sparkplugs are Esther Williams and Red Skelton. Williams’ bathing beauty and Skelton’s comedy make for a pleasing combination that does much to get over the pleasant, but fluffy, story.

Top tune of the Frank Loesser score is ‘Baby, It’s Cold Outside’, dueted by Williams and Ricardo Montalban, and, for comedy, by Skelton and Garrett.

Story thread holding the antics together concerns itself with a bathing suit designer-manufacturer-model, Williams; her business partner, Keenan Wynn; her dumbdora sister, Betty Garrett; and Skelton, a masseur for a polo club.

Film includes a number of beautifully staged water sequences.
