Watched Neptune's Daughter last night, a 1947 "aquamusical" starring Esther Williams and Ricardo Montalban. If you've ever wanted to see Khan sing, dance, and swim, this is the film for you. He also has enough shirtless scenes to confirm that, yes, that really was his chest in Wrath of Khan.

For the record, Montalban plays "Jose O'Rourke," a suave South American polo champion, and handles the breezy romantic comedy with a nice light touch and plenty of charm.

Amazing trivia: Montalban's song, "Baby, It's Cold Outside," won the Oscar for Best Song that year.

The song in question.
