I saw a movie on TV in late 1950″s or 1960″s where a young boy was taken in by some priests to live. One day he went into a room where a large cross with Jesus crucified came alive. I can”t remember the name of the film. I thought it was about the childhood of Saint Augustine or somebody else. Could you help me.
