That would be LEAVE HER TO HEAVEN (1945), but it was actually in color (maybe you saw it on a B&W television):

Here's the scene on the lake, by the way (just a tad different from your memory of it):

Thank you so much for that. That’s incredible that you have identified that for me.
Greatly appreciated.
Thanks again.
And I imagine you’re right, we did have a a B&W tv for a very long time!

Yes, so did we -- my father was an electronics engineer, so, unfortunately for me, he kept our old DuMont b&w TV working for years after everyone else was buying color sets!
