Along Came Ruth is a 1924 film starring Viola Dana. The film was directed by Edward F. Cline and written by Winifred Dunn, based upon a Holman Francis Day play. Ms. Viola Dana was one of the top stars of the newly amalgamated MGM, a lively comedienne who enjoyed a long career that faded with the emergence of the talkies.[1][2]


Ruth (Viola Dana) is a small-town live-wire who takes over a furniture shop and its owner's nephew.
