Hi everyone! 

I have been trying to figure out the name of this movie for almost two years now, it was AMAZING and for the life of me cannot figure it out! 

I have a few basic details but everytime i search i come up empty handed so I figured why not go to TCM.
Well, here it goes! 


Basically the movie surrounds a young girl who moves to New York to become an actress . She meets  a man on a balcony during a party and they have a conversation on what they do as a career, he's an artist. jumping ahead the girl ends up working as a secretary for a gentleman who lives in the building in which the party was held, same building she ends up living and ultimately dying. Her bosses house keeper ends up finding her hanging in (from what i remember) a closest or bedroom. The head detective of the scene  states that the victim was pregnant and says that because she was found in the bosses apartment they must have had an affair and he murdered her. Throughout the movie this detective searches for clues surrounding the young womans death and finds out that she has worked many jobs under many different names (a bar a restaurant etc etc) he also finds out that she ran from a small town to avoid a marriage to a young man who (i think) was to become a lawyer.

While the investigation is going on the neighbors that threw the party from the beginning (a stay at home husband/ french artist and his actress wife) are being questioned by the police.

**if i can remember who the wife was, i may be able to figure out the movie name but this is where i draw a blank**

The wife says that she heard screams and signs of a struggle. she said that sometimes their telephone lines get crossed because they are in the same building and shes heard the suspect speaking with the victim numerous times (i could be making this up but im trying to remember best i can)  she says that she cant believe he would have done this.

Well fast forward to the end- the actress wife actually finds out that her husband (the artist) is having an affair with the victim due to the crossing of the telephone lines and over hearing a conversation between the two. 

I HOPE AND PRAY SOMEONE CAN GIVE ME THE ANSWER THAT I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR!! I REALLLLY LOVE THIS MOVIE AND AM SOOOO BEYOND UPSET THAT I CANNONT FIGURE OUT THE NAME OF IT LET ALONE WHO PLAYED IN IT!!
Hopefull the details given is enough i can tell you this movie is in black & white and its more of a "dramady" (if thats even a word)

BLACK WIDOW it's a 1950's film it stars Van Heflin, Gene Tierney played his wife.Ginger Rogers (the wife you asked about) Peggy Ann  Garner is the pregnant girl having an affair with Ginger's husband  played by Reginald Gardiner-, George Raft plays the detective.  Hope that helps.
