Need help finding a movie

There's an old movie possibly with Ronald Reagan don't know anyway it was back in the 40's or 50's and the main actor makes some kind of clicking noise with his mouth. I know this sounds like a strange request but my friends grandmother and her husband loved this movie it was said that when he walked passed her sitting at the desk he made a click click sound with his mouth when he walked past her and she said click click yourself I saw that movie to. Anyway they ended up getting married and now that she has passed my friend wants to see what movie her grandparents were talking about. Anybody know of an old movie 30's 40's or 1950's movie where this scene could have taken place?

In "Yankee Doodle Dandy" (1942), James Cagney makes an odd noise in the scene in which George M. Cohan in old-age makeup meets stage-hopeful Mary (Joan Leslie). I looked for a clip but couldn't find it.  That's the only one that comes to mind.

You can watch the trailer at YouTube:
Yankee Doodle Dandy Trailer (1942)

This is part of the scene but starts too late for the "clicky" sound he makes:
Jimmy Cagney hoofing it up a treat !

That's the only "click" I can think of.
