No one's as good as Barbara Stanwyck when she is "bad" - and the Double Indemnity star gives an equally chilling performance opposite rugged Van Heflin and dynamic Kirk Douglas (making his feature-film debut) in The Strange Love of Martha Ivers. Three youths - Martha, Walter and Sam - are forever bound together by a terrible secret. Decades later, Martha (Stanwyck) and Walter (Douglas) are now married - she's a wealthy, successful industrialist; he's a popular, ambitious District Attorney. But when Sam (Heflin) unexpectedly drifts back into town and into their lives, tensions rise. Is he simply back for a visit... or is he looking for a payoff to keep their awful secret buried? Lizabeth Scott is the troubled girl who finds herself drawn into Sam's life - and the mysterious relationship he shares with Martha and Walter. Love never dies... even when it's The Strange Love of Martha Ivers.
