I once watched a 1970s film in Russian translation – HOUSE near the road. The film is black and white. The plot of the film is as follows. The woman (she is also the driver of the car) had a car breakdown on the highway in a deserted place. A woman enters the nearest lonely house and calls for help. Help is promised not earlier than morning. The owner of the house, an old judge, invites her to stay overnight. The owner says that his favorite pastime in the evenings is playing a lawsuit with a neighbor. In the evening, a neighbor comes – an old prosecutor. They invite the woman to take part in the play as a witness. During the trial, it turns out that the woman’s husband died ten months ago. During the trial, she is shown suspicion. At 6 o’clock in the morning, the judge announces the death penalty.

“The Deadly Game” (1982)?
It has a similar premise, but in this movie the main protagonist is a man, not a woman.
It might be “The Deadly Game” made in 1957. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0714204/?ref_=nm_flmg_wr_96
