Handwritten letters of any sort seem like a thing of the past, but one of the most effective expressions of affection will always be a love letter. Writing a love letter is actually a relatively safe way to express one's feelings; if the object of your heart's desire does not return your enthusiasm, you need not be present when he or she reads your letter. This "safety feature" is partially canceled out by the fact that once your most private thoughts are written down and delivered, they can no longer be truly private. It is kind of like pressing "Send to All" in an email, it is difficult to take back.

Love letters from the 1940s

Part of the reason that love letters have gone out of fashion is the rise of instant communication. However, receiving a text message will never equal the impact of a perfumed letter from your girl back home. Some of the most important love letters were sent during the War. They were often carried by the soldiers who received them in a pocket over their hearts, read over and over again until the creases of the paper began to fray. Going not battle, what greater reminder could there be of what they were fighting for, or a better reason to get the War over so they could get back to their girls.

  • A Day in the Life of Dennis Day, October 23, 1948, NBC, sponsored by Palmolive. Dennis discovers a spicy love letter that his girlfriend, Mildred has written, and it is pretty obvious that Mildred is not writing to Dennis. As it turns out, Mildred is entering a romance magazine's spicy love letter contest, but Dennis does not know that. So, he tries to make her jealous, and we can imagine how that goes.
  • My Favorite Husband, September 30, 1950, CBS, sponsored by Jell-O. After an exasperating evening of Liz changing her mind, George insists that from now on she finish everything she starts. When she goes to clean out the hall desk, she finds a letter that she started years ago after they had their first quarrel, so she decides to finish the letter and send it to him now.
  • The Adventures of Sam Spade, March 27, 1949, CBS, AFRS, "The Love Letter Caper". Sam gets a syrupy love letter from a pretty girl with three million bucks and a big problem. Her uncle, who controls all of her money until she marries, reads all of her mail, so the love letter to our favorite gumshoe is a trick so she can hire a detective. It all adds up to even more trouble for Sam Spade.
  • Nurse writing letter for wounded soldierThe CBS Radio Mystery Theatre, September 27, 1979, "Letter of Love, Letter of Death". The killer loudly proclaims his innocence and the cops have no evidence, but the investigator claims that he will arrest the killer, in fact, the killer is going to beg to be arrested. A theater producer is found stabbed in his office and there are many suspects but not many clues. There was also a tip that there is a mystery woman, but she turns out to be a nobody who sits behind a typewriter all her life.
  • Fibber McGee and Molly, October 21, 1941, NBC. Molly decides that it is time to do some fall house cleaning. While Fibber is fetching and toting, Molly discovers some old love letters. Fibber is not too enthused about hearing the drippy stuff he wrote all those years ago.
  • The Life of Riley, December 10, 1944, Blue Network. Riley is taking algebra at night school and receives a mysterious love letter. He doesn't know who wrote the letter, but she promises to come by the house on Saturday to take him for a picnic. What will Peg say when she meets Riley's mystery girl?
