Lavender, 

As always, very good.  This 1940 screwball comedy is reminiscent of others of the genre, but quite enjoyable.  

Your turn.

She's also met another guy who likes her but thinks her boyfriend and her friends are stupid and cruel and doesn't understand why being popular with these students is important to her.

Take Care of My Little Girl?

Yes, Take Good Care Of My Little Girl. Jeanne Crain, Dale Robertson, Mitzi Gaynor, Jean Peters, Jeffrey Hunter and even Natalie Schaffer is in this one as the House Mother of the Sorority. It would have been a too much of a giveaway to give clues about the Sorority since the film is all about that. Good work Star, Thanks and it's your thread ;)

The proprietor of the saloon takes her in until she can sail back to Ireland and, the next day, he attends church with her in an upscale area of the city.

Is it 1945’s NOB HILL, with Peggy Ann Garner, Vivian Blaine, Joan Bennett and George Raft?

Good guess Princess, but this is not the film.

Next clue:  the woman marries the man, and moves with hin to Paris.  This helps her to get away from her past.

Thanks for the reminder Lav.

The crooks flee from the home.  The wife and her husband go after them.  She confesses her past to her husband, who forgives her.  One of the gang has a change of heart, and decides to return the stolen  jewels.  The leader is unaware of this.

The husband and wife forgive him.  The wife then performs on the stage, and the repentant crook goes to the ocean liner  to meet up with his boss..  The ship had been booked to remove them from France with the stolen goods.

As he is boarding, he intentionally  drops the case that is supposedly carrying the stolen jewelry into the ocean.  This way, his boss will be none the wiser that the jewels were returned.
