The Lost Moment (1947)

A publisher insinuates himself into the mouldering mansion of the centenarian lover of a renowned but long-dead poet in order to find his lost love letters.

Wonderfully atmospheric Goth mystery that manages to compel despite some very loose ends, especially the dubious intentions of the male lead.

Halliwell*: "Slightly absurd but memorable period drama with a guilty secret eventually coming to light, all put across with apparently deliberate artificiality."
