"Ahead of Time": History has many unsung chroniclers, but perhaps none has been eyewitness to as many of the modern world's pivotal events as Ruth Gruber.

In Ahead of Time by renowned cinematographer-turned-director Bob Richman, she is still as sharp, vibrant and meticulously groomed as she must have been throughout years of global adventures.
