      Roberta M "Walk in the Shadow," "Condemned to Life," and "Life for Ruth" are different names for the same movie. After an accident in the nearby sea, Ruth's parents cannot agree on whether or not to have the doctor in charge try to save her life, due to their differing religious beliefs. No matter what name is used, it's a powerful movie with excellent performances all around. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
