AFS Presents: THE STRANGE LOVE OF MARTHA IVERS
August 13, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - August 14, 2015 @ 12:35 pm
Directed by Lewis Milestone
USA, 1946, 35mm, 116 min., B&W
“A gripping film noir, all the more effective for being staged by Milestone as a steamy romantic melodrama.” – Time Out
Barbara Stanwyck is at her best as a woman whose deep, dark secret, shared only with two childhood friends, one now a hard-drinking district attorney (Kirk Douglas in his first role), and the other the man she loved as a child, rises up to confront the pair years later and sets off a chain reaction that threatens to destroy them all. A classic, intriguing noir melodrama that features a stellar cast including Van Heflin and Lizabeth Scott.
