Strange Love Of Martha Ivers is a 1946 black-and-white film about childhood relationships that later lead to obsessive love and murder. Martha Ivers (Barbara Stanwyck) is a wealthy prime mover. Together with her husband Walter O'Neil (Kirk Douglas), an alcoholic DA, they live in a huge mansion in Iverston, a small Pennsylvania town. Walter loves Martha, but she detests him. No one understands why the two tolerate each other. Apparently, when they were young, Walter was a witness during an incident when Martha accidentally killed her aunt. This gruesome secret has kept them together ever since. An Iverstown boy, Sam Masterson (Van Heflin), returns to town, and this scares Walter as he suspects of Sam's knowledge to their secret, since he might have been in the vicinity when the murder took place. Sam requests Walter to help intervene in a situation where Toni (Lizabeth Scott) has been unjustly imprisoned. Suspecting his motives, Walter attempts to drive him out of town by any means possible. This, though, opens up a Pandora box as everyone involved face the consequences of their actions.moreless
