The strange love of Martha Ivers (1946)

– Justice is justice.

The decidedly Dickensian 1920s start is unexpected for a noir. Then we move forward in time and meet a severely dysfunctional married couple, a chance visitor from the past stirring things up, and an unreliable young girl – everyone unhappy, trapped in their own troubles and tangled up in each other’s.

Not bad, though too slow for my book of love and power.

– Just like nothing ever happened.

    I’m a fan, but given my love of Barbara Stanwyck, that’s not a surprise.
