Ruth Terry

Ruth Terry was a child singer who sang with the Paul Ash Theater Orchestra from the age of twelve and then later, after leaving her hometown, with Clyde McCoy's orchestra. When Ruth entered films she worked her way up quickly through the ranks to leading female roles in B-movies and westerns of the 1930s and 1940s. In 1947 she retired to Canada after marrying her second husband. She came out of retirement in the late 1950s to make guest appearances on television shows like 'The Real McCoys' and '77 Sunset Strip' before retiring from public performance altogether in 1966.
