Black and White. Orphan. Graves on a Prairie.

I just remember this one scene. It’s black and white, maybe from the 30’s or 40’s. And I remember it as two graves on a stark prairie (it looked as if it was filmed on a set). Two crosses, each with a large circle wreath. Well a child was looking on the graves from a window and it turns out that they are his/her parents. The child is now an orphan. And a great wind storm comes and batters those wreathes around until they’re ripped from the graves. There might have been some snow as well.

(Now this part might be just from my imagination, but the child might have been looking from a basement window)

For the longest time I thought it was “Citizen Kane” but I re-watched it recently and it wasn’t that movie. Any ideas?
