Do You Know This Movie?

A recent request by a reader:

LOOKING FOR THE NAME OF A OLD MOVIE. MOST I CAN REMEMBER A WOMAN WAS PAINTING ON THE BEACH. SHE MET A NAVY OFFICER THEY HAD A FLING. I THINK HE FELL DOWN THE STEPS AND DID NOT SURVIVE. THE INSPECTOR KNEW WHAT HAPPENED BUT DID NOT PURSUE IT. , FINAL SCENE SHE IS DANCING WITH HER HUSBAND AND CRYING BECASUE HER AND THE NAVY MAN DANCED TO THE SAME SONG

Sorry about the capitalization, but apparently our friend likes to shout. Let’s see if we can help him with this question. Anybody have any idea what this movie is?

Could it be Jean Renoir's The Woman on the Beach (1947), which has some of these (but not all) plot elements? Info about that movie can be found here.

I'm impressed, Moira.

I haven't seen Woman on the Beach but assumed that was it. This movie is on TCM on Nov 11, 05:30PM Eastern Time. I'm really looking forward to it because, well it's Jean Renoir! Robert Ryan! Joan Bennet!

I've never seen this movie. Thanks for the programming note, Panavia. This is sounding interesting.
