No Man of Her Own (1950)
In this romantic melodrama, Barbara Stanwyck plays a pregnant young woman who is abandoned by her callous lover. With only a train ticket, the despondent woman heads for home. While aboard the train she meets a wealthy young couple heading home to happily announce their new baby. The wife is particularly excited for she has yet to meet her in-laws. Stanwyck admires the young woman's beautiful wedding ring and the latter generously allows her to try it on. With no warning the train derails and both the young groom and his bride are killed.

Fortunately, by this time, her "brother-in-law" has fallen in love with her and intervenes. … More

stanwyck owns this picture, leisen's only noir film. great up until the last few minutes when it gets a little too expository for my liking. and i wish they'd kept cornell woolrich's original title: i married a dead manMore
