A Letter for Evie Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

The 1922 silent comedy was updated to the war years and remade as A Letter for Evie. Marsha Hunt is the title character, a girl who does her patriotic bit by sending affectionate letters to a soldier overseas. The soldier (Hume Cronyn) comes to visit on leave, accompanied by his best friend (John Carroll). Evie wants to be loyal to her pen-pal, but the pen-pal's pal is so doggone cute. Letter for Evie represents one of the earliest feature film assignments for Jules Dassin, who would eventually contribute such notable films as Jules Dassin and Jules Dassin. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
