Help with two movies

I am looking for the names of two movies. The first is almost like the great escape, but in black and white, and the main guy escapes with a girl on a train. The second is about a girl who is a dancer or singer and meets a guy at a casino or bar and he pretends he is poor, but owns a ranch outside of town.

If with the first movie by saying it's like The Great Escape (1963), you mean it takes place during WWII, and involves an allied soldier escaping from German captivity, then try 36 Hours (1965), with James Garner, Eva Marie Saint, and Rod Taylor (not sure if it ends up with Garner and Saint in a train, tho):

The second one reminds me of "Where It's At" from 1969, with casino owner David Janssen not being able to break through the generation gap to connect with his son Robert Drivas. I don't remember Drivas hiding his relationship to his dad from Rosemary Forsyth in the story, but that may have happened early on. I haven't seen or thought about that movie since the early eighties at least.

The first one sounds like that Richard Widmark movie, it has a couple titles because of release location and adaptation issues...but ultimately comes from the Alistair McLean thriller, 'The Secret Ways'. One of its other titles is 'Frontier ...something)'

The second request might be...'The Princess and the Cowboy'? Lee Major TV movie? Or that movie with Glenn Ford, 'the Rounders' (something like that)?
