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. Written by

What's this about a certain "most eligible bachelor" falling in love with a statue?
Perhaps, my dear, she reminds me of you.
[Walks away with Pretty Girl. ]
Yeah, they both have large pedestals.

[Sashays up to Savory, who has reappeared]
Whitfield, you remember my daughter, Brenda?
Not little Brenda? You've - uh

Evidently a few characters' names were changed during production, causing serious contradictions in various sources' cast lists. Haymes's character is just plain "Joe" (no surname), but some sources grafted onto him the surname "Grant" from Arden's character! As if that weren't bad enough, poor Arden (addressed by various characters as "Molly Grant" consistently through the film) finds herself wrongly identified in some sources as "Molly Stewart" (which is never the surname she bears in the actual film).

If you don't fall in love with Ava Gardner after seeing the movie you don't have a chance of falling in love. Harmless entertainment, the dialog is classy and represents a time when people listened to words. The music and words for "Speak Low. darling speak low" are the kind that makes you hum all day. But this movie is all Ava Gardner. No wonder Frank Sinatra only had one love, Ava.
