Stanwyck plays the part of a young cold-hearted heiress who murders her strangely sadistic grandmother. In doing so she sweeps a young companion in as a co-conspirator to help her cover up her crime. Flash forward a number of years and we find she has become the icy matriarch of the city aptly named after her family, Iverstown. She literally runs the community with an iron fist. She has married her young companion (Douglas). He has become the city district attorney and a spineless drunk who Stanwyck dominates. Enter Heflin her childhood boyfriend, now a war hero passing through town. With his appearance the love triangle is complete and we see the stylish direction of Milestone work as the three stars sink deeper and deeper into a world of corruption, murder and betrayal.
