    • Released: 1948
    • Directed by: William A. Seiter
    One Touch of Venus is a 1948 black-and-white American romantic musical comedy film directed by William A. Seiter, starring Robert Walker and Ava Gardner, released by Universal-International, and based on the Broadway musical of the same name, book written by S. J. Perelman and Ogden Nash, with music composed by Kurt Weill. However, the film omits most of Weill's music. The actors did their own singing, except for Ava Gardner whose singing was dubbed by Eileen Wilson. In 1945, Mary Pickford announced that she would produce a film version of this musical with the Broadway cast, including Mary Martin, filmed in Technicolor, directed by Gregory La Cava, and released by United Artists. However, Martin got pregnant and Pickford sold the rights to Lester Cowan at Universal in August 1947. Ann Ronell, Cowan's wife, wrote the additional music that replaced much of Weill's material. This movie is the inspiration for the 1987 film Mannequin.
