Movie Info

The spirit of love is back, and she's working in retail in this bubbly romantic musical comedy. Eddie Hatch (Robert Walker) is a window dresser at a large department store; he's become especially fond of one of his mannequins who looks like the sort of girl he'd like to meet, and one night he impulsively gives the dummy a kiss. To his tremendous surprise, the mannequin comes to life, and it turns out to be inhabited by the spirit of Venus, the Goddess of Love (Ava Gardner). Suddenly, romance is

Audience Reviews for One Touch of Venus

If you've seen Mannequin, this is pretty much the same idea, it didn't work in the forties so I don't know why they did it again in the eighties. At least it's better than Mannequin.

Goofy silliness that has quality stars in Robert Walker, although he looks terribly dissipated, and Ava Gardner, still the world's most beautiful animal even if she does spend a goodly part of the movie with a hat that looks like an overgrown black fern on her head. Sterling support comes from Eve Arden, a blessing to any movie she was in. The three of them and the lovely song Speak Low are the reasons to see this.

Following the most basic of premises one could think of, the movie works quite well, due to the strong performance by the irritating and quirky Robert Walker. Ava Gardner does what she does best and hypnotizes the audience with her tender beauty and charm. The movie follows the misadventures of a young window dresser who accidently bringa the statue of Venus back to life by kissing her. The rest of the movie unfolds in classic screwball fashion, no one believes him, the police is after him, Venus falls in love with him and so forth. A cute little picture that might as well had been lost in obscurity. One of the movie's setbacks are the musical numbers which feel compeltely out of place, especially with Robert Walker in the lead and Ava Gardner lipsynching.

The movie is available to watch on Youtube:

Id recommend this movie to fans of Ava Gardner or B-Movie Screwball comedies.
