This week’s mystery movie has been the 1946 Paramount picture “The Strange Love of Martha Ivers,” starring Barbara Stanwyck, Van Heflin, Lizabeth Scott, Kirk Douglas, (Friday’s mystery guests), Judith Anderson (bonus mystery guest), Roman Bohnen (not shown) and Darryl Hickman (not shown). It was written by Robert Rossen from a story by Jack Patrick,  photographed by Victor Milner, with art direction by Hans Dreier and John Meehan, process photography by Farciot Edouart and set decoration by Sam Comer and Jerry Welch. Music is by Miklos Rozsa, costumes by Edith Head, and the film was produced by Hal B. Wallis.  Directed by Lewis Milestone.

“The Strange Love of Martha Ivers” is on Netflix, and is available on DVD and Blu-ray from several vendors on Amazon but be selective about the quality. It’s also going to be on TCM next week as part of the “Summer of Darkness” series, so you may want to set your DVR.
