Another reboot from last year…
Here’s a cool rendition of a winter classic you may not have seen before.
The high point of the Esther Williams swim-musical Neptune’s Daughter (1949) is her performance with Ricardo Montalban of the delightful Frank Loesser patter song “Baby It’s Cold Outside.” The number has Latin lover Montalban trying to entice swimsuit designer Williams into a cozy evening of lovemaking. In a comic reprise of the tune, Betty Garrett, as Williams’ man-hungry sister, tries the same seductive strategy on Red Skelton, playing a zany masseur from Montalban’s polo club.
