Betsy Blair, already a founding producer with Garance Films, briefly set about acquiring the rights to the original novel with the intent on making it her directorial debut.

I saw this film on TV when I was a young man. I loved the music, the story and the characters. The sets were magical and the acting was perfect for this movie. The musical score was one of the best ever, and perfectly fit the times. It all made such an impression on me. That time in history came alive. I have the musical score (not the original but still a pretty good arrangement). I have two copies taken from the TV showings and I watch it every six months or so and am thrilled by each showing. I wish there were a fan club for "walk". These comments may seem simple and unsophisticated, but I wish every one could see this film; some might be as enchanted by it as I am.
