The Tinted Venus was based on the 1885 novella by F. Anstey (pseudonym of Thomas Anstey Guthrie), in which a statue of Venus becomes human and responds to social mores and repressed sexuality in Victorian England. (The novella was also the basis for the 1941 musical fantasy, One Touch of Venus, by composer, Kurt Weill, with book by S. J. Perelman and Ogden Nash, and lyrics by Nash. A 1948 film, One Touch of Venus (film), was based on Guthrie's book and the musical.)
