  • Watching TCM at Home - Another Van Heflin Noir
  • 11:45AM - The Strange Love of Martha Ivers (1946) A film noir released in the United States in 1946, starring Barbara Stanwyck, Van Heflin, Lizabeth Scott and featuring Kirk Douglas in his film debut. The movie is based on the short story "Love Lies Bleeding" by playwright John Patrick. On a rainy night in 1928 in a Pennsylvania factory town called Iverstown, thirteen-year-old Martha Ivers (Janis Wilson) tries to run away from the guardianship of her wealthy, domineering aunt with her friend, the street-smart, poor Sam Masterson (Darryl Hickman), but is caught and brought home. Sam comes for her, but Martha's aunt hears her calling to him. While Sam slips out unnoticed, Mrs. Ivers starts beating Martha's cat with her cane.

    Robert's Note: Always great, Dame Judith Anderson, is the evil Mrs. Ivers ... or She Who Must Die. Re: She beats a cat. Stanwyck is solid, as always. Lizabeth Scott is at her husky-voiced, sultry best. Kirk Douglas is believable as Martha's weak husband. Martha Ivers is in the public domain, and can be viewed on YouTube.
