Kick-Back Friday: #10


The Strange Love of Martha Ivers is a strange, little noir story made entirely watchable by the supporting performances of Kirk Douglas (in his film debut) and the sadly forgotten Lizabeth Scott. Oh yeah, and Barbara Stanwyck is her usually stellar self in the patented role of any man’s ill-advised lover.
