The film is an old classic film and I cannot recall the actors but the plot is as follows:
the lead male and female play actors that were in love in their youth and somehow got separated as the years went on. The man searched for her for years. When he thinks he as found her it is actually her daughter. The mother is embarrassed because she did not age very well and so the daughter meets with him. The only other point I can remember is that she always wore gloves when meeting him.
It is a black and white film and I think it would be around 1940's.
