One Hour with You (Paramount Pictures, 1932) is an American film produced and directed by Ernst Lubitsch with the assistance of" George Cukor and adapted by Samson Raphaelson, from the Lothar Schmidt play Only a Dream. The film is a musical comedy starring Maurice Chevalier, Jeanette MacDonald, Genevieve Tobin and Charles Ruggles, about a married couple who find themselves attracted to other people. A French-language version of the film, called Une heure près de toi was made simultaneously, with Lili Damita playing Genevieve Tobin's role. In 1932, the film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture.
The story is about a Parisian doctor Andre Bertier (Maurice Chevalier) and as his loving wife, Colette (Jeanette MacDonald). Bertier is faithful, much to the surprise of his lovely female patients. But when Colette's best friend Mitzi Olivier (Genevieve Tobin) insists upon being treated by Dr. Bertier, it looks to many of those concerned that Mitzi may succeed where the other willing ladies failed. The misunderstandings and reconciliations of the plot are staged with careful superficiality by director Ernst Lubitsch.
