Kay Stanton, her husband Neil and son Tommy live on the French Riviera. While at the port, when her husband was on a trip she meets an American naval officer, and they begin an affair. Kay knows she loves her husband Neil and tries to end the affair, but she and Mark fight over this and she shoots him accidentally. Her next door neighbor, Daphne, takes Mark's body and throws it in some dump. Later she calls the police to tell them where she dumped him. Neil is called by the police so he can help them with an ensign who is an amnesiac victim recovering from a gunshot wound; this man happens to be Mark. He regains his memory and recognizes Kay, but keeps quiet when Neil introduces them. Neil has a deep feeling that Kay and Mark know each other, but knows Kay really loves him. The theme song is sung by Johnny Mathis and is precious in all aspects. You will enjoy this movie tremendously. Written by

A romantic suspense tale in the mold of an Alfred Hitchcock thriller...
For avid fans of Alfred Hitchcock's style of suspense, MOMENT TO MOMENT will fill the bill nicely--especially since it's lavishly photographed among some beautiful French Riviera surroundings and extremely well played by JEAN SEBERG (at her most radiant) and has HONOR BLACKMAN in an enjoyably campy role as her best friend and neighbor.
Seems that Jean is a bored housewife who drifts into a tender affair with a hunky sailor (SEAN GARRISON, whose career seemed to go nowhere except to TV roles), and when she kills him during an explosive argument she gets help from her neighbor to bury the body in a nearby ravine. From then on, it's a cat-and-mouse game with the French authorities that keeps the audience guessing right up until the finale.
Under Mervyn LeRoy's direction, this is a little slow-moving when it should have been more taut with suspense. Still, it's so attractively filmed and performed, and accompanied by an attractive Henry Mancini score, that it's recommended viewing for any fan of this sort of suspenseful romance.
