I am looking for this film, which is Yugoslavian, and is a loose
adaptation of the BasCelik folktale, well known to Slavic peoples, but
virtually unknown here.  I have tried all sorts of search services, and
they all say it's too obscure for them to find it, or tell me it's
available from MGM, when I specifically tell them it is NOT Bert I.
Gordon's film starring Basil Rathbone.
