Also known as The Crucial Moment, A Donto Pillanat was one of three 1937 films helmed by prolific Hungarian director Laszlo Vajda. Klari Tolnay and Antal Pager star as Eva and Gabor (!), the leading players of a second-rate touring theatrical troupe. Forever on the fringes of the big time, the couple continues to aspire to stardom on the Budapest stage. Gabor is given the opportunity to replace the leading man in a long-running stage hit, but a series of unexpected complications nearly scotch his big break before it happens. At long last, our hero proves to be a huge success with the cosmopolitan theatergoers, whereupon Eva willingly gives up her own acting career to devote herself full-time to her husband.
