What a beautiful and exciting actress

wjerryzwjerryzOct 4, 2017

Been in many movies ,one of my favorites

LITTLE KOJAKJun 17, 2010

Who would I have preferred to see at the movies, Norma Roman or Ruth Roman? The latter conjures up a glamor gal with a great figure; the former does not. And Ruth Roman was a glamor gal of the `40s, `50s and early `60s.

robertApr 5, 2009

why isn`t STARLIFT listed in ther credits for 1951 ? I realize she played herself, but she was very different from many of her other screen roles. Please correct this inaccuracy someone !

Ol redneckNov 19, 2008

Good job Ruth, I have enjoyed your acting very much. MSF

Beatrice HartJul 8, 2008

I loved her acting and I am so sorry to see that she has passed!
