An 1967 film directed by Ken Loach. This film is, as usual for Ken Loach, a social drama. It looks at the life of a poor woman who involves herself with petty criminals. One of these is played by Terrance Stamp.

Steven Soderbergh bought the rights to this film after casting Terrance Stamp in the film The Limey. The Limey deals with the relationship between a criminal and his daughter. Soderburgh used footage from Poor Cow in The Limey to depict flashbacks to the past when Stamps's charaters daughter is about eight years old. This works brilliantly in Soderburg's movie and Stamp, in spite of his age, has maintained his looks. One imagines that most actors would dread being cast against a version of themselves that is 30 years younger, but Stamp is illuminated by the comparison.
