    Looks like Arthur Treacher and Alison Skipworth, so my first guess would be “Satan Met a Lady.” I don’t think that’s their costumes from the film, however, so I’ll plunk for something even more obscure…. “Hitch Hike Lady.”

Oh yeah — that fellow with her — not quite so talented but pleasant nonetheless is Randolph Scott.
