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 serviceman tries to look up his pen pal from WW!!
what a wonderful movie and how handsome does that William Holden look?? a love story i can see repeated in some modern movies too such as "you've got mail".....i wonder how many times letters were written during the war under false pretenses....its story plot is simple: Ruth's younger sibling writes letters to a serviceman in her name and he learns to care for her...Ruth losing her heart in spite of herself seems to sum it all up...
would love to have a copy but the movie never seems to be around... i have a grainy VCR recording of it from the eighties..would love to see it on DVD..
Joan Caulfield (not a particularly gifted actress in my opinion) shines in this performance and i laugh at Billy DeWolfe's antics each time i see him.
i guess i long for a simpler time of life, though i imagine those who lived through WWII would say i was crazy..i cannot believe i found this site and that others enjoyed the movie too!!! i have an original program from the play also....
