Summary
A young window dresser's problems begin when he kisses a statue of Venus, which comes to life. This Venus turns out to be the genuine article on an earthly assignment. Her presence causes everyone around her to fall in love, except for the window dresser, who is terrified of her advances toward him. The young man suddenly becomes the object of a furious employer and a jealous fiancée
