The Ragman's Daughter Reviews
"The Ragman's Daughter" could have stopped with the image of Victoria Tennant riding a horse through the ghetto and it would have merited a recommendation. Instead, it goes deeper in its tale of romance, including suspense in all the right places. This was made in a time when despite appearances class was still a big part of the equation of daily life in England. It is implied that Doris' father(Leslie Sands) got ahead by cheating his customers while it would take the petty minded Tony a large score to escape his fate of dreary physical labor. As one important confrontation is not staged as well as it should, there is also the issue of the past and present looking almost identical which while probably due to budget constraints might also be a sign of how little things really change in the Midlands.
