A graphic artist who is tired of the big city rat race, moves with his wife to an affluent suburb.  He just wants to paint pictures of landscapes.  She likes the high life of the city.  At a cocktail party hosted by their new neighbors, she gets drunk and gets into a terrible argument with him.  Shortly thereafter she disappears and the townsfolk suspect that he did away with her.

Yes, it starred Alan Ladd and Carolyn Jones.  It was directed by famed director Michael Curtiz and was filmed in and around Woodstock and Thompson, Connecticut, which are in the northeast corner of the state.  The movie was in black and white, but the house that served as Alan Ladd's home in the film has traditionally been painted pink.  It is a historic home in Woodstock, known as Roseland Cottage and is famous for it's rose gardens.

The shades of pink have changed over the years.  If you are ever in that area, it's open for tours from June to October.

Nice job, Lavender.  It's your turn next.

The man who's searching for his friend finds the dead body of a man who had given him some information about his friend. The body has been planted in his hotel room, he's been set up and the killers have called the police, he hides the body just in the nick of time before the police show up.

Is it "Dead Reckoning" with Bogie and Lizabeth Scott?

Yes, Thanks Miles, as a last resort I used that clue about Bogart and Scott. Very surprised it took this long to solve but on the other hand Dead Reckoning isn't shown that often so that could be why. Please hang around the site more often we all miss you. You're up buddy :)

The last clue did it for me, although I should have gotten it earlier.

Now, a movie star was secretly married but her husband was killed shortly after the wedding.  Now, she finds herself pregnant, so to avoid a scandal, she moves back to her hometown to have the baby, using the excuse that she is going into seclusion to prepare for her next movie role.  She plans to adopt the baby later.  She asks her former sweetheart, who still lives in the town, to help with the baby when it is born, but the baby becomes three babies, because she gives birth to triplets.

You are correct, Starlit.  "Rock-A-Bye Baby" was a sort of remake of "The Miracle Of Morgan's Creek".  In fact, Preston Sturges was given screen credit for the story.  In this one, Marilyn Maxwell plays the movie star and Jerry Lewis is the old boyfriend.  Connie Stevens, in an early role, plays Marilyn Maxwell's younger sister.
