Ronald Howard and Lana Morris star in "Moment of Indiscretion" from 1958.

Though the actors did their best, the script for this film was very poor. A woman (Lana Morris) married to an attorney (Howard) goes to say goodbye to her ex-fiancé, who is leaving for the jungle. It's completely platonic, but knowing her husband is sensitive on the issue and never got along with this man, she doesn't tell him. On her way out of his place, she witnesses a murder on the floor below. She runs from the scene, dropping her monogrammed handkerchief and house key as she goes.

Needless to say, it doesn't take the police long to catch up with her. She winds up being arrested for the murder.

The problem with the script is that the attorney husband seems to be able to get into the dead woman's apartment and find things that apparently the police never bothered with. The apartment isn't cordoned off as a murder site (though the murder happened in the doorway), and why didn't the police go through it more thoroughly? And how stupid was it for the attorney to find something his wife told him was there and bring it to the police - who then weren't sure where it came from -- rather than inform the police and let them find it, thus proving she was in that apartment as she said she was, and didn't go to the building to kill the woman? You'd think an attorney, or anyone else, would know better.

Very disappointing.
