Leave her to heaven by John M Stahl( Visual )

7 editions published between 1945 and 2013 in English and held by 620 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A driven woman, linked by incestuous bonds to her now dead father, pathologically demands a love which her conventional, uncomprehending husband cannot give her. Except for the passing moment when she scatters her father's ashes to the wind, such obsessive passion cannot find fulfillment and impels her to revolt through acts of murder, abortion and suicide. The trial, at the film's end, a parody of normal legal processes, ultimately becomes an implicit statement of society's incomprehension of such inner strength twisted by the lack of understanding of those around her.DVD
