Lovely British actress.
Ritchie made her screen debut in an ill-fated German version of The Threepenny Opera in 1962, but went on to become a star in the same year with her portrayal of Ingrid in the gritty A Kind of Loving (with Alan Bates, 1962).
She went on to appear in a further six films including Live Now – Pay Later (1962) and The Mouse on the Moon (1963).Ritchie made a total of four films in 1963, then vanishing from the big screen until 1968, when she made her last film, The Syndicate.
This is a fine letter, handwritten in green ink on a notelet, and almost certainly from around the time of A Kind of Loving.
It reads (in full):
Dear Mrs Davies,
Thank you very much for your very kind letter, I was thrilled to hear you enjoyed the film so much.
Enclosed is your card - duly signed.
Unfortunately I have not yet received any photographs for the purpose of sending out. But promise to send you one at the first opportunity.
Hoping you had a most enjoyable Easter.
One narrow tape stain to the left of the front of the notelet but otherwise in very good condition.
