titoli: The Strange Love of Martha Ivers (1946) This movie has two great scenes: that of Stanwick and Heflin on the hill and the final three-sided confrontation except...except that the way that one ends is all wrong: censorship-induced? I would have given it an 8\10 in spite of its taking a long time to get going: the Lizbeth Scott angle, though integrated in the script, it is secondary to the Douglas-Stanwick relationship which isn't well-developed and consequently makes the finale appear even more forced of what already is (or maybe I say this because I don't like Scott, who also seemed to me to be a poor man's Bacall, and I adore Stanwick, probably the best combination of looks and acting ability in Hollywood in the years before the emergence of Ava Gardner). And Douglas is absolutely miscast, though of course nobody when they hired him could predict the screen persona he would develop in the decades to be, as distant as could be from the character he plays (badly, of course) here. So it's 7\10. Anyway I would like somebody to explain the finale to me, eh CJ?

cigar joe replies: I'd have to watch it again

Thanks again, D & D, I love the movie. Is it still in public domain or is there finally a good print available? Haven't rewatched lately because my copy is so crappy.
