describe the scene game

This has been bugging me for a few days now, but it finally came to me.  The movie is "Nightfall" with Aldo Ray and Anne Bancroft.  It was on TCM's Noir Alley and is a very suspenseful film.  If the clues had said that the man and his doctor friend had been camping, or that the bag with the money was buried in some snow, it might have come to  me sooner.

 The film  is Nightfall, Aldo Ray and Anne Bancroft and Brian Keuth.

Didn't want to make it  too obvious. I described the scenes in enough  detail and mentioned that he and his doctor friend who the thugs kill were on a trip and thought anyone who had seen the film would have recognized it, I was going to give one more clue tomorrow about that final scene and that I'm sure would have clinched it for you since it was about the snow and that tractor.iThe film has been shown a few times over the years on TCM. It's a very excellent noir, the photography is great. Glad you did remember the film and thanks for the photo, good work your thread Miles.

This next one should be familiar to many.

A man askes two other men to deliver some straw hats to the Susquehanna Hat Company on Bagel Street.  They don't know where Bagel Street is, so they decide to ask people on the street for directions.  As they ask each person, that person gets so infuriated that they violently shake one of the men and they each proceed to destroy one of the hats.

It's been way too long since I posed the question and frankly I'm disappointed that no one got it.  Here is the scene from "In Society".

 

  

A few years ago I was at a fair and there was a vendor selling hats.  They called the company the Susquehanna Hat Company.  I asked if they got the idea from the Abbott and Costello routine and they answered yes.  The thread is open.

If I'd seen I'd have gotten it.

Hint: The man's problems involve his mother. The guest is a female who is running away from a problem of her own making, but she decides to return and face it.

Correct Star, Daisy Kenyon. It was just on TCM Sat night. It's now considered a great film, I've seen it a few times over the years and never thought it was that special. Joan Crawford, Dana Andrews and Henry Fonda. Good work, your thread.
