One Hour with You is a 1932 American film. It was produced and directed by Ernst Lubitsch ("with the assistance of" George Cukor) and written 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.

One Hour with You stars Maurice Chevalier as Parisian doctor Andre Bertier and Jeanette MacDonald as his loving wife, Colette. Bertier is faithful, much to the surprise of his lovely female patients. But when Colette's best friend Mitzi Olivier (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.

The music from the period and singing of Maurice Chevalier are the highlight of the film.
