Along Came Ruth is a lost[1] 1924 film starring Viola Dana. The film was directed by Edward F. Cline and written by Winifred Dunn, based on Holman Francis Day's play of the same name, itself based on the play La Demoiselle de magasin by Belgians Frantz Fonson and Fernand Wicheler. Viola Dana was one of the top stars of the newly amalgamated MGM, a lively comedian who enjoyed a long career that faded with the emergence of the talkies.[2][3][4]
