One Touch of Venus was a musical, with music by Kurt Weill, which satirized contemporary American suburban values, artistic fads and romantic and sexual mores.  The original Broadway production opened in October 1943 and ran for over 560 performances.

The musical was made into a 1948 film, starring Ava Gardner and Robert Walker.  The movie seems to have strayed too far from the Broadway production, however, and it received poor reviews.
