Additional Info

Based on a medieval legend. Poor and hungry Barnaby is taken in by the monks and at the fair the Man with the Blue Garter befriends him. He's treated kindly at the monastery, except for three pompous monks who want to get rid of him. On our Lady's feast all the lad has to offer is his juggling which scandalizes the three monks until they see her statue smile and come alive. The Lady kisses the exhausted boy. Barnaby is released from the monastery and goes back to the road with the Man with the Blue Garter and the donkey-- and people now accept him because of the miracle.
