Ruth Hall (born Ruth Gloria Blasco Ibáñez;[1] December 29, 1910 in Jacksonville, Florida – October 9, 2003 in Glendale, California) was an American film actress.

Hall was a 1929 graduate of Henry B. Plant High School in Tampa, Florida.[2]

Hall was a great-niece of Vicente Blasco Ibáñez, the Spanish novelist. She took her mother's maiden name as her professional name so as not to benefit from the novelist's more celebrated last name.[3] In 1931, she signed a contract with Paramount Pictures.[4]

She was married to cinematographer Lee Garmes[1] from 1933 until his death on August 31, 1978; the couple had two daughters.
