Movie Info

In this film, teen-aged Miriam Watkins inaugurates a warm pen-pal relationship with an overseas air force officer. When the airman arrives in town, he insists upon seeing Miriam's older sister Ruth. It seems that Miriam, in an effort to appear older, signed her letters with her sister's name.

Critic Reviews for Dear Ruth

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Even tardily, as it comes to the screen, it is still reasonably entertaining.

March 2, 2018 | Full Review…

The hit play becomes a mediocre picture. You can't blame the script. Arthur Sheekman's screenplay retains almost all of Krasna's good dialogue.
