    Hi,

    can anybody help with identifying this film (possibly late 60s, early 70s).



    A boy really likes a girl, who is often seen riding her horse, but she is "out of his league". He has a motorbike.



    However, they do end up getting together, but have a crash whilst both riding his motorbike, and the girl dies.



    Years later, the boy (now a man) is sitting in his kitchen with wife and couple of kids, but is daydreaming of the girl, his tragic lost love.



    The actress who played the girl had the first name (I think) of Lynn (might not be that exact spelling)



    Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

    Paul

    This sounds like The Ragman's Daughter (1971) based on the novel by Alan Silitoe.

    Thanks Hugo!

    You cracked it!



    And that was with my false leads - wrong actresses name, she didn't die on the motorbike etc.



    Much appreciated,

    Paul

    I don't know if it's possible for one of the moderators to change it but woodsy mistakenly chose his own post as Best Answer when it was actually Hugo who identified the film.

    I've reset the answer. Now it's up to woodsy to mark the correct one as the best answer
