The Voice of the Turtle (1947) is a comedy film starring Ronald Reagan, Eleanor Parker, Eve Arden, and Wayne Morris, directed by Irving Rapper, and based on the long-running 1943 play of the same name by John Van Druten.[1]

Due to its retitling when it was released to television in the 50's, the film has become better known by its reissue name One for the Book.[citation needed]


A young actress agrees to a date with a soldier on a weekend pass after he's stood up by her friend. When the soldier has trouble getting a hotel room he ends up spending the weekend at her apartment.
