They Knew What They Wanted (1940)

Tony, a successful but illiterate middle-aged grape farmer, sends the photograph of his handsome young foreman, Joe, instead of his own, hoping to woo and marry Amy, a waitress in a San Francisco restaurant. Through a series of letters, the two become close and Tony invites his “future wife” to visit. When the beautiful, young Amy arrives at Tony’s Napa, California ranch she falls for the wrong man thinking that Joe is the wealthy Tony.¬†
