NEPTUNE’S DAUGHTER (1949)   95 min.

Scatterbrained Betty Barrett (Betty Garrett) mistakes masseur Jack Spratt (Red Skelton) for Jose O'Rourke, the captain of the South American polo team. Spratt goes along with the charade, but the situation becomes more complicated when they fall in love. Meanwhile, Betty's sensible older sister Eve (Esther Williams) fears Betty's heart will be broken when Jose returns to South America. She arranges to meet with the real O'Rourke (Ricardo Montalban) and love soon blossoms between them as well.

Won Best Original Song Oscar for “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.”
