This is an old black and white film (30s, 40s or 50s). The setting is 19th or early 20th century. The man and woman are in love but end up being imprisoned under circumstances which I cannot remember. At night they meet in their dreams in a kind of paradise. At the end of the film the final scene is of the man dying in his grubby jail with his arm raised, feebly calling his loved one (who probably died earlier) as he is about to join her forever....

Jumping Jehoshaphat, I didn't think there'd be a person left in the world who would know this, Thank you Brian, that's the one.  Old memories get mixed up: I thought the main actor was Tyrone Power, but it was Gary Cooper.  The whole film is, thankfully,  fully available on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gad4ifX-glo
