Dear Ruth is a 1947 romantic comedy film starring Joan Caulfield, William Holden, Mona Freeman, and Edward Arnold. It was based on the Broadway play of the same name by Norman Krasna. A teenage girl has a soldier for a pen pal, but uses her older sister's name and photograph. Then the man shows up while on a two-day leave. There were two sequels: Dear Wife (1947), with all of the principal actors reprising their roles, and Dear Brat (1951), featuring Freeman, Arnold and De Wolfe. Although it is sometimes mistakenly believed that J. D. Salinger got the name for his character Holden Caulfield, in The Catcher in the Rye and other works, when he saw a marquee for the film, the first Holden Caulfield story, "I'm Crazy", was published in December 1945, a year and a half before the movie's release.
What do you do with a pitcher whose dominance has helped his team claim two world-championship banners? If the pitcher is burly lefty George Herman Ruth, you banish him from the mound, put a bat in his hand and watch him clout one record-setting home run after another. William Bendix suits up in Yankee flannels as the renowned pitcher-turned-outfielder and Sultan of Swat in a movie that mixes fact, fiction and more fiction in a way that makes it a bit of a novelty among sports biopics. Claire Trevor portrays the Babe's beloved wife. Fans of classic films and radio, plus baby boomers who were glued to the tube in the Fifties will remember Bendix for his performances as the likable lunk and family man in The Life of Riley.

Twelve series were broadcast between 2 August 1987, and 11 October 2000.

When broadcast, these three stories were broadcast under the title Inspector Wexford.
