The Strange Love of Martha Ivers

 (1946)

The Strange Love of Martha Ivers Blu-ray features mediocre video and decent audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

In 1928, young heiress Martha Ivers fails to run off with friend Sam Masterson, and is involved in fatal events. Years later, Sam returns to find Martha the power behind Iverstown and married to "good boy" Walter O'Neil, now district attorney. At first, Sam is more interested in displaced blonde Toni Marachek than in his boyhood friends; but they draw him into a convoluted web of plotting and cross-purposes.

The Strange Love of Martha Ivers Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

The Strange Love of Martha Ivers is presented on Blu-ray courtesy of HD Cinema Classics – Film Chest with an AVC encoded 1080p transfer in 1.30:1. As mentioned above, the press sheet accompanying this release touts the fact that Film Chest worked with 35mm elements housed in the Library of Congress to restore this release, and while that may sound impressive, as anyone who has done research or gotten copies of archival data kept at the Library of Congress will tell you, just because it's at the Library of Congress doesn't mean it's in fantastic condition. As also mentioned above, this film fell into the Public Domain and has been bootlegged and released by inferior labels for years, though Paramount still has probably the best prints available and did release its own DVD a few years ago. Paramount may still end up releasing its own Blu-ray or licensing it out to labels like Olive Films down the road. What is here is another typical Film Chest restoration that does best with regard to removing scratches and other damage, but largely misses the boat in terms of good contrast and (especially) utilizing DNR, which erases not just film grain but a lot of fine object detail. The result is a sort of waxy smooth offering with inconsistent contrast that is alternately too low in some dim scenes and then seemingly pushed to the point where whites bloom in others. One of the best things that has been a consistent plus with the Paramount catalog releases licensed to Olive Films is that they have had no (or at most, next to no) digital tweaking and represent a very filmic look, for better or worse. This Strange Love is pretty far removed from that look.


The Strange Love of Martha Ivers Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Strange Love of Martha Ivers features a mono soundtrack delivered via a standard Dolby Digital 2.0 mix. It's not particularly bad to have a lossy track here, though an incredible Miklos Rozsa score like the one in The Strange Love of Martha Ivers certainly could have benefited from lossless audio. The soundtrack has a couple of brief drop outs (at least one linked to what appears to be a missing frame), but otherwise damage is minimal. The midrange sounds really rather decently full in this presentation, though some extreme highs are a bit clipped. Dialogue is cleanly presented and is always easy to hear.
