Strange Love of Martha Ivers 1946
Young heiress Martha IversТ only family is her overbearing aunt (Judith Anderson) who is determined to make a lady out of her niece. When Martha is caught trying to run away for the fourth time with the mischievous Sam Masterson things go from bad to worse. Martha inadvertently kills her aunt with her school pal Walter OТNeil being the lone witness. Walter covers up for Martha and tells his father that Mrs. Ivers was murdered by a stranger.
Fast forward 18 years. Martha (Barbara Stanwyck) has expanded her auntТs steel mill business exponentially and is richer than Croesus. She owns half of Iverstown and usually gets what she wants. Martha marries Walter (Kirk Douglas), a perpetually nervous, weak-kneed drunkard, who is running for a Уsure betФ second term for district attorney. Martha and Walter are the only living souls who know what really happened 18 years ago in the Ivers house. They also abuse the power of the district attorney by putting an innocent man to death for the murder of Mrs. Ivers. All is well until Sam (Van Heflin), now a drifting small-time gambler, passes through town on his way out west...
