Summary :

"This is Miguel--Miguel Chavez who held in his heart a secret wish and yearned to go with the men of his family to the Sangre de Cristo Mountains." ...and now Miguel, a story of the middle child of a sheepherding family coming to the age of responsibility, is based on the film of the same title produced by Joseph Krumgold for the U.S. State Department, also in 1953. The 62-minute film, part color, part b&w (there seems to be an all b&w version) depicts the lives of the Chavez family, sheepherders in and around Las Cordovas, New Mexico. (Another source says that the movie was filmed in Cerrillos.)
