Answer
Hi Judy,
Thanks for your question.  I believe I know the movie you're looking for,...although this black and white film is from a later time period than the years you mention.  At any rate, it's plot is exactly what you've described.
It's the Warner Brothers Studio's 1947 film, "Nora Prentiss" starring Ann Sheridan, Kent Smith, and Bruce Bennett, and a host of other Warner Bros. favorite actors.
You can read more at:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nora_Prentiss,...and also at www.IMDb. com.
The film is available on DVD at www.Amazon.com.
Sincerely, Jim K.   :)
