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

First time I saw this movie, I was in my early twenties and of course in a pretty romantic stage. I ran into it again on TV once back in the 1980's & I found it was equally enjoyable. It is a movie, which has the romance & suspense in a perfect rapport. People may think the acting lacks depth and the story is out of date. However, what do they matter if the story is wonderfully played out and the feeling of the characters is believable? I may not be as naive and romantic as before, but, every time I hear Henry Mancini's "moment to moment", the beauty of Jean Seberg's profile & French Riviera comes out of my memory and henceforth the story. The love, forgiveness & understanding among all the characters make me think that the world I'm leaving in is a beautiful place.
