Check out (if no one has mentioned it already):
 
MacMurray and Robinson's exchange at the very end of *Double Indemnity*
 
Kelly and Sinatra right after the ballet number in *On the Town* (I
think I remember the dialogue being this specific in its avowal of
mutual affection)
 
The song "I love you" is sung by Robert Strauss and Harvey Lembeck in
the POW camp in *Stalag 17*
 
In *Hollywood or Bust* Lewis says he loves Martin (I think to his face)
 
I also think there is such a conversation between Danny Kaye and Dana
Andrews on a bus, in context referring to a woman but heard by a
passagenger out of context, in *Up in Arms*
 
In *Road to Morocco* Hope and Crosby says it to each other (a comedy bit
around a camel in the opening section of the film.  (I have an article
on Hope and Crosby that talks about this scene coming out later this
year in a collection called *Out Takes* edited by Ellis Hanson)
 
Also, if you're including TV, last week, the end of *Men Behaving Badly*
(which I caught accidentally, so didn't see the whole show) had this
exchange, too.
 
Hope these references help.
