    I absolutely adore Van Heflin. One of the first films I ever saw with him was Presenting Lily Mars. I probably would have liked it, but for some reason the speaker system on my television set was malfunctioning. Later, I decided to watch The Strange Love of Martha Ivers. After that, I fell deeply in love with him. He is one of my favorite actors of all time.

    Real, down-to-earth, believable, comedy or drama, usually character actor in supporting role, but leading man in my book! One of my all time favorite actors. Been watching "Old Movies" since I was 5. Think I first saw Van Heflin in "The Strange Love of Martha Ivers". Loved the way he treated Lizbeth Scott's character; very gentle and caring. The little personal touches that he brought to his characters; like smoking his pipe, and the coin "trick" he did in a couple of his movies... that was a bit that he added himself. His deep, calming, voice mesmerized me. I loved listening to him speak! And thought he was very handsome, though I have heard it said that he was not considered good-looking enough for leading roles. Wanted to write to him when I was in high school (early 80s), was very distraught when I found out that he was no longer living. May sound silly, but still remember that day. Thanks to TCM for providing a way for us people out here, "in the dark", to still get to see the faces and hear the voices of the those we love; but never knew or met (or got to write to). Maybe somehow they know how much they still mean to us. Thanks.

    Van Heflin was not a typical leading man in the category of Errol Flynn or Cary Grant. And after reading some of his bios, he agreed with that evaluation--since his looks wouldn't make him a star, his acting had to. I enjoy his movies and his acting, but I also like his rugged look and his sincerity. He was modest--almost self-depreciating, and that added to his charm and appeal on the screen.

    Van Heflin was one of the best actors that I love to watch. He made his roles so real,that you really get involved in the movies, and enjoy watching them over & over. He was truly a great actor, but was never to receive the star power he deserved. I am a great fan of his who truly appreciates the enjoyment from his acting/movies...& he is one of the best actors of all time.

    In seeing Van Heflin in many films, I truly feel that he was underrated overall. The breath of his performances speaks well of him as an actor. Most actors today do not possess his acting talent!
