One Touch of Venus

Synopsis: In the art department of a large department store, the statue of the famed Anatolian Venus comes to life and falls in love with Eddie Hatch, a window trimmer. Just before the unveiling of the prized statue, Eddie takes "Venus" to the model-display house in the store, where the store's boss finds her. He, too, falls in love with her and makes her Glamour Girl Number One. Eddie and Venus dance in Central Park, but Eddie is arrested for stealing the statue. Venus goes back to her pedestal and Eddie is released. While Eddie is sadly preparing for another unveiling, a new employee asks him a question. She tells him her name is Venus Jones.

Whitfield. You remember

my daughter Brenda?

Not little Brenda?

You've, um, grown, Brenda.

Hatch is waiting, chief.

He finished the drapes.

Oh, excuse me.

Whitfield hasn't seen Brenda

since she was a child.

He used to bounce her on his knee.

Well, bully for Brenda.

I've been his secretary for 10 years

and I haven't made it yet.

Pardon me.

Now, we'll see if it works easily.

You see? It jams there.

Yes, sir.

I don't know what could

have happened to it, I--

I want that material to go up smoothly

so that the statue

will be revealed dramatically.

- Yes, sir.

- Now, use your head, Hatch.

I don't want to have to fumble with that rope

like a fool in front of all my friends.

No, sir. I'll take care of it, sir.

Hurry up.

Yes, sir.

Oh, Mr. Savory.

You forgot your--

Golly, you're beautiful.

Please! How can I fix this

if you don't stand still?

I'm all right. I'm all right.

Just a little overworked,

maybe, but I'm all right.

You're moving!

Was it you who kissed me?

You're talking! You're alive!

Well, of course I'm alive.

What did you think I was?

Well, I'm not very bright,

I... thought you were a statue.

Excuse um-- Brandy!

Smelling salts!

Spirits of ammonia!

Poor mortal. Are you frightened?


I don't know the meaning of the word.

Why, you darling.

You are frightened.

Well, just from the toes up.

Come here.

Come here to me.

Close to me.

Oh, he's wonderful.

Thank you, Jupiter.

There, that's better.

What? How did I get out here?

I brought you out. Fresh air.

Oh, thanks.

I guess I fainted, didn't I?

I-- I was working on the draperies

around the statue,

and all of a sudden

I had the strangest feeling,

some kind of a delirium.

I dreamed that the statue came to life.

It spoke to me.

- Isn't that silly?
