Prison, dreams and true love

Seeking a title for a film brought up in recent discussion. The only info I have is that it is a that it may be a B&W fantasy movie about man in prison who has dreams about a woman where they both meet every night and fall in love.

The person who saw this said they caught part of it on TV, so it _could_ be a TV movie(?)

I understand it is vague, but.. if any place can find an answer…

One thought on “Prison, dreams and true love

  1. Try “Peter Ibbetson”(1935) with Gary Cooper.

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0026866/

    ‘…Their love revives, but Peter is sentenced to life in prison for an accidental killing. Mary comes to him in dreams and they are able to live out their romance in a dream world…’

    I’m pretty sure you can watch the full movie on youtube.

Got something to say?
