Yes, it's Joel McRea.  If you think about some of his best known movies like "Sullivan's Travels", "The Palm Beach Story', and "Foreign Correspondent", they were all in the first fifteen or so years of his career.  Gary Cooper made "The Virginian" in 1929.  Joel McRea made the remake in 1946.  After that, he seemed to be typecast as a western hero.  He didn't object, but he did point out that Cooper and John Wayne were often the producer's first choices. 

Thenryb, you get to post the next one.

Shutoo, a perfect answer.  Yes, She's the one.  Being the mother of four children, and living in the East, she didn't like the idea of being away from home for such a long period of time.  

Too bad, because I thought she was quite charming in the movie.

 

Shutoo, your turn.

She's a well known actress, with both film and tv work, who was seen in comedies, musicals and dramas.  Her husband (2nd one) has a page in IMDB with just one acting credit..in a film with her.  He wasn't the only 'newbie' on the set: a character with lots of screen time was played by a man who never had before, or since, acted in a film (but he was known to the public for something else)..and this man's wife was an extra in the movie. 

Do you know the actress, and maybe the one-time actor from this very well known (Oscar nominated) film who 'brought along' their spouses?

The famous actress and her one-role hubby can both be seen in a courtroom scene..but they never have lines together. The film was considered somewhat controversial when it was released.

A lot of your clues sound like Eve Arden and her second husband Brooks West, both seen in Anatomy of a Murder. The other "newbie couple" would be Joseph N. Welch, who played the judge, and whose real life wife was a juror.

However, you stated that the woman's husband had one acting credit, while Brooks West has a few TV acting credits.
