* ''Film/TheStrangeLoveOfMarthaIvers'' (1946). The film opens in the 1920s. The eponymous young girl is the only living relative and heiress of a wealthy, domineering woman. She is miserable while under the control of the aunt, and one night tries to run away with the help of a (male) childhood friend. She fails to escape undetected, struggles with the aunt over a flight of stairs, and accidentally kills her. Worse, there is a witness to her crime. So she is blackmailed into marrying the witness, while someone else is blamed for the "murder" and executed. Her old friend seems to vanish. The plot moves to the 1940s. Martha is fabulously wealthy, and has financed a political career for her husband, who has grown to genuinely love her. They wield "tremendous power" in their community. When her long-missing friend drifts back into their lives, the couple is convinced that he knows all about what happened that long-ago night and aims to blackmail them. They try to silence him in various ways, unaware that he actually had no idea what happened that night. He is simply in town because he took a [[WrongTurnAtAlbuquerque Wrong Turn]] while driving. The film is one of the better known films noir of Creator/BarbaraStanwyck and Lizabeth Scott, who were both major stars in the genre.
