The Strange Love of Martha Ivers (1946)
Kirk’s first film, with Barbara Stanwyck. Stanwyck “was a professional…an excellent actress. But she as indifferent to me…who needs help more than somebody working on his first picture? Several weeks later she noticed me. She said, ‘Hey, you’re pretty good.’ I said, ‘Too late, Miss Stanwyck,’ I don’t think she knew what I meant. But after that she was nice to me, and we became friends.” Ragman’s Son 134.
