The Lost Moment
Publisher Lewis Venable (Robert Cummings) is desperate to acquire love letters between noted 19th century poet Jeffrey Ashton and Juliana Bordereau (Agnes Moorehead). Learning that Juliana is still alive, Lewis arranges an introduction. Assuming the identity of a rich author, Lewis meets the now-blind Juliana, who allows him to rent rooms in her home. Lewis' search for the letters takes a turn when Juliana's great-niece, Tina (Susan Hayward), is revealed as a schizophrenic obsessed with Ashton.
