Ask Dr. Ruth - An Excellent Documentary about the World's Most Popular Sex Therapist

Back in the 1980s, I would regularly listen to Sexually Speaking with Dr. Ruth Westheimer on WYNY when it was an AC station at 97.1 FM.  This documentary is available to Hulu subscribers and is also being shown in selective theaters including the Kew Gardens Cinema.  She tells that she was born in 1928 in Germany just before the Nazis took over.  Her parents sent her to Switzerland where she lived as an orphan.  She eventually moved to the United States where earned a doctorate and then became a sex therapist.  She got her fame with the radio show that started out in NYC and then was heard all over the county.  From there she moved to TV as her popularity skyrocketed.

I highly recommend this film.
