Arturo, I'm just waiting for your confirmation that Beyond the Forest is correct.

Starliteyes, 

Good try but that isn't the movie I'm thinking of.  Here is another clue.

The wife is killed on her way to Chicago.

The title of the film is a song from the turn of the last century, which is when the story of the film starts.  The title has the wife's name in it

This studio’s PR department planted stories that an actor in an upcoming film would become the next Perry Como because of a scene in which he sang and accompanied himself on the piano.  However, the scene was cut from the picture before release and, although the actor went on to have a lengthy career in movies, it was not as a musical star.

Name the actor and the movie.

The film in question has a very famous theme song, which is also the title of the picture.

Is it LAURA and Vincent Price?

That is exactly what it is!  The first cut of Laura included a scene where Vincent Price sang You'll Never Know while accompanying himself on the piano.  It was cut before release and seems to have ended his musical career.

Your thread, Arturo.

He had noticed her in the bar.  She soon follows him out of it, and into the cab he is taking.  She invites him up to her place.

She finds out he feels he's a has-been, and can't get a decent job; in short, washed up.  She hatches a scheme to help him out, and to bank on his name and popularity.

The woman sets up a showcase for the man at the bar where they first met, owned by a friend of his, and where his friends and acquaintances frequent.  A drunk in the audience throws him off and he bombs.
