I read the book "A Candle for St. Jude" (still have it) by Rumer Godden a number of years ago, and only recently learned it had been made into a film (56 min. long), apparently back in 1952, and was released on video in 1969. I am wondering if anyone has seen this and can recommend it. It was a Westinghouse Studio One presentation. I don't know if the story line in the film is true to the book -- all I have been able to learn about the film version is that it depicts a ballet troupe in conflict. The film is choreographed by Ruthanna Boris with Lili Darvas and Tanaquil LeClerq in the cast.

For those unfamiliar with the story, here is beautiful, one-page site, with a synopsis.
