Format: VHS Tape
For me, the strength of this film is in the accuracy of the racing details, the costumes and the culture of the time. The racing scenes, shot on Epsom Downs recreate the Derby's of 1881 and 1885, and have been thoroughly researched, even the jockeys used for Fred Archer and Fred Webb show an amazing likeness. Also, the scenes in the streets, on the racecourse and in the public house are totally believable.

This is a film made by those who love and cherish the subject. Although to my knowledge, having worked at Racing Post for many years and, written the history of the Derby, very few people today know of the this film. Strangely, a few years ago, I awoke at 4 am, unable to sleep, to find the film just starting, and then, never saw it again, until succesfully pursuing a rare video copy.
This film has much to recommend it - a Victorian romance, the struggle of conscience, excitement and, a ripping gambling yarn.

Michael Church.

A rather flat and lifeless story which even the stars couldn't lift. I regret purchasing it. Don't expect too much!

I found this a good historical no-nonsense film. Although Esther had hard times, I feel she fared better than many unmarried mothers of that time. An interesting look at the vagaries that befell the fallen woman and the fight for survival without the welfare state.
