Genre: Musical; Starring: Ava Gardner; Director: William A. Seiter; Author: Harry Kurnitz, Frank Tashlin; Runtime (in minutes): 94; MPAA Rating: Unrated

There’s just one reason to watch One Touch of Venus, a flaccid rendering of a Broadway musical about a window dresser (Robert Walker) who brings a statue of Venus to life — and her name is Ava Gardner. If only Vincente Minnelli had been in charge and most of Kurt Weill’s score hadn’t been ditched. Ava gets an A, the movie a C?.
