    Hi everyone, any ideas please of the title of a film i can only remember a few scenes from; black & white, made possibly late 1940's, set in late victorian or early edwardian period, a young single woman is attempting to acquire a job, but the stony faced woman in the employment agency tells her quite sternly she won't get a job without a reference, woman says can she have her fee back, agency woman says "your fee is non returnable", woman can only get a job scrubbing in a Wash house where she collapses because of the strain, after this i think a gentleman saves her from a life of drudgery, though i can't personally recall anymore of this film.



    Cheers

    It could possibly be Esther Waters which I remember suprisingly little of considering I saw it a few weeks ago. The heroine is a single mother who does various jobs (and spends some time in the workhouse) before reuniting with Dirk Bogarde.

    Could be Cap'n and thanks for your answer, maybe you could watch it again sometime just to confirm, I definitely remember the scene in the employment agency.



    I recall Kathleen Ryan and Dirk Bogarde in a later film set in Belfast, there's a Tram in it that says 'Falls Road' on the destination blind.
