The Lost Moment is a 1947 film based on Henry James' novel, "The Aspern Papers." The movie centers around a New York publisher who goes to Italy in search of 19th century poet Jeffrey Aston's love letters. Aston disappeared mysteriously. The story plays out in a lengthy flashback. The publisher, Lewis Venable (Robert Cummings), tracks down the poet's lover, Juliana Bordereau (Agnes Moorehead), who is now an elderly woman and recluse reminiscent of Charles Dickens' Miss Havisham in "Great Expectations." Lewis uses an alias to rent a room from her. He also encounters Juliana's niece, Tina Bordereau, a sort of mentally unstable young woman who runs the household. Tina (Susan Hayward), distrusts Lewis from the start, but that doesn't stop her from throwing herself at him in the middle of the night. Lewis quickly realizes that something isn't quite right with this family. Even the family priest warns him about them. He's willing to do almost anything to get those love letters.moreless
