help me id a movie: 80's. near the end, there is a widow/wealthy older woman who laments her husband's riches, insinuating their great wealth has not led to happiness. she shows the protagonist the tin foil/gum wrapper ring her husband proposed to her with when they were young, poor, and happy. any help?

Not a movie... I believe an episode of Night Court. The widow was talking to Dan, and they end up flying to Paris on the Concorde.

If "Night Court," then two potential matches: "Married Alive" and "Auntie Maim."

Not from the 80s, but could you be thinking of the cigar band wedding ring in The Unsinkable Molly Brown?
