It’s “May Murder Madness” As LRPA Highlights Cinema Noir All Month Long!

This Weekend’s Feature: 1946’S “The Strange Love Of Martha Ivers”


Throughout May, Lakes Region Public Access Television will highlight some of the most dark and gritty movies ever to come out of Hollywood! Join us each Friday and Saturday night at 10:30 p.m. for “May Murder Madness,” a tribute to vintage film noir. This weekend (May 18 & 19), we keep the ball rolling with the 1946 film noir classic “The Strange Love of Martha Ivers,” starring Barbara Stanwyck, Van Heflin, Lizabeth Scott and Kirk Douglas (in his debut role!).


In 1928, the young heiress Martha Ivers tries to escape her claustrophobic life with her authoritarian aunt, Mrs. Ivers (Dame Judith Anderson). She wants to run away with local bad boy Sam Masterson, but the police catch them and bring her home. Martha and her aunt argue, and in the heat of the moment, the teenager pushes Mrs. Ivers down the stairs, killing her.  The son of her tutor, Walter O’Neill, witnesses the event. When Martha lies to her tutor about how the accident happened (an intruder killed her!), Walter backs up her story. Walter’s father suspects that young Martha is lying, and so manipulates the situation to one of financial gain for his son. Fast forward nearly 20 years. A grown Martha (Stanwyck) is now married to Walter (Douglas), an alcoholic district attorney. Martha has built her aunt’s factory into a small empire. Their marriage is a disaster, as he loves her, but she doesn’t return the feelings. Meanwhile, Sam Masterson (Heflin), now an aimless drifter, winds up back in his hometown due to a car wreck. While waiting for his car to be repaired, he meets the lovely Toni Marachek (Scott), who’s just gotten out of jail. After Toni gets picked up for violating her parole, Sam visits Walter to see if he can help her out of this jam. Walter is wary of Sam, as he thinks that Sam is in town to blackmail the couple for what he knows about Miss Iver’s death. Martha sees Sam again for the first time in nearly two decades, and Walter jealously realizes that Martha never lost her feelings for Sam. What follows is an unfortunate chain of events that prove the cold, calculating and vengeful nature of four human beings.


If you’re a lover of classic movies and of film noir in particular, then “Martha Ivers” has it all: murder, blackmail, greed, deceit, dirty secrets and ruthless dames. It received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Story, and deservedly so. Every actor gives a stellar performance, particularly Van Heflin, who played here against type as the sneering, hard-boiled bad boy. In writing about the film debut of Kirk Douglas, famed columnist Louella Parsons noted that Paramount Pictures had “unearthed themselves another wonder boy,” and she certainly was right. Critic Leonard Maltin described “Martha Ivers” as a “…gripping melodrama – 3 out of 4 stars.” What more do you need to know? So grab your popcorn and join LRPA after dark for this vintage classic!


Mark your calendars for our final murderous movie:
