A normal day in the Wilkins family: reticent beauty Ruth, crusty judge father, petition-happy political activist teen Miriam. Who should show up but Ruth's soldier pen pal Bill Seacroft...whom she doesn't know about. It seems Miriam used her sister's name and picture to build up wartime morale. Ruth reluctantly agrees to "humor" Bill for his 2-day leave, though she's just become engaged to her stuffy suitor Albert. Can Miriam's cloud castle last the weekend without crashing to earth?

a good movie, that perhaps doesn't hold up as well as somesome
I though this movie very good. All actors in it were more or less stars of the time. The title, Dear Ruth, is perfect. Good to see William Holden. Is a little old-fashioned but holds up pretty well. I really don't know what else to say. I enjoyed this movie when it first came out and I still enjoy it.
