When a man asks another man more facile with words to do his wooing for him, there are always complications. The man with no talent for writing marries the girl, confesses one night he didn’t write the letters and ends up with a knife in his back.

William Dieterle was one of the truly original directors in Hollywood and, unfortunately, one of the most forgotten nowadays. Dieterle's cinema is lyrical and, above all, psychoanalytical. The last part of 'Love Letters' is a pure jewel. Highly recommended.
