The Strange Love of Martha Ivers is one of those really dark films noir that tends to get away with more than it seems to be getting away with.

Vintage thriller that too often veers more toward mopey melodrama than sizzling film noir.

One of the most effective and underrated noirs of that classic era.

Though well-crafted, this potboiler is a second-tier film noir, mostly known for featuring Kirk Douglas screen debut, as Stanwyck's weakling hubby; in a few years, Douglas will develop his more characteristic persona as a tough, tenacious he-man.

Buscando ecoar o infinitamente superior Pacto de Sangue (também com Stanwyck), o filme desperta interesse por sua moral ambígua, mas se enfraquece em função do final implausível. Mas Douglas impressiona já em sua estréia.
| Original Score: 3/5

A gripping film noir, all the more effective for being staged by Milestone as a steamy romantic melodrama.

Pervaded by his guilty-liberal fascination with power and money.
