A film I saw 20 years ago in NY about a farmer who is nagged by his wife and her mother. When the wife and motherr die in a craash, the farmer takes to bed. A famous scene has him in bed with food, books and his tuba hung over the bed with oulleys, and he sends his dog to town for food. Please help with a title.

I'll want this movie title as well so that I can rent it. Any movie that has a tuba hung over a bed and a dog going to town for food sounds good to me. Lets see, how would Spielberg remake it ?
