The Moment I Fell for Van Heflin

Cary Grant Won't Eat You Posted by Judy on Sep 23, 2014

I didn’t know a thing about Van Heflin when I saw The Strange Love of Martha Ivers (1946).

(Image: Doctor Macro) Say the name “Van Heflin” today and chances are, your conversation partner (unless they are a fellow old Hollywood “expert”) will have no clue who your talking about, which is the unfortunate reality when it comes to many classic stars. But in the 1940s, read more
