Looking for the title and actors in a 50's something TV show / movie about a guy in advertising or marketing who had to deliver a marketing plan, but had nothing. A word in a newspaper caught his eye and he started building upon it, without any idea of what product he could market on that lead. The strict, blue-eyed, blond iceberg of a career woman who had to work with him, despised him because, knowing he was a big player, she guessed that he had nothing. In the end he worked towards a secretive product that he revealed to the company as sweets filled with liquor. After tasting too much, the woman ended up in his apartment, wearing only his light blue pajama jacket the next morning, furious with him. In the end he and a hastily commandeered preacher caught up with her while she was rushed towards a hospital labor room on a trolley; the preacher sputtered the holy matrimony questions and the woman, still furious, screamed a pain filled "Y-e- s!" before disappearing into the labor room with the doors closing behind the trolley and nurses and doctor. So funny! I need a good laugh so I need to lay my hands on this movie. Title please?

General questions

I saw the last part of a thriller / suspense TV show / movie while flipping channels on (South African) TV one night in the 1990's. The name was something like Chase! / Catch! / Chance! / Catch, based on a novel with perhaps that title. The plot was that a woman was kept in a room in a seaside mansion in a small town by her doctor-husband. He told all people that she was ill and that he was treating her; meanwhile she believed that he was making her ill and that she would be killed (as she believed and told a private detective) like his previous wife. Whenever she heard him walking on the steps she became agitated, or when she heard him playing the piano. (Not "Julia"). The film was set in I think the 80's. The doctor was always wearing impeccable dark suits, and was the classic "tall, dark, slim and handsome" guy. She was the classic "fair skinned, dark haired, slim, beautiful lady, wearing long flowing gowns. One night she escaped through the back door and in his chase after her, the doctor was killed. Cannot remember how, or any actor's name. However, when she in the end was driving on a desert-like road, totally relaxed, and stopped by a Mexican community to ask the road, a guy in white Mexican clothes approached her, and appeared as the smiling, captivating doctor-husband...! I need the title of the movie, the book, the author and actors' names, anything please.
