1960's live action fantasy of a boy on a quest for a blue rose and the monsters he encounters. (it was not The Thief of Bagdad)

I saw this on tv between 1963 and 1966. My clearest memory is of a monster about three feet tall, shaped like a puffer fish, and blew like the wind at the boy to stop him on his journey. There also was a troll figure who lives under a bridge in a gully. The boy overcomes the challenges and finds the blue rose growing at the top of the mountain. And no, it was not The Thief of Bagdad. thx!!

I thought this had to be the movie you were looking for. Good luck!

The Thief of Baghdad (1961)

The story concerns a prince, played by he-man Steve Reeves, who must pass seven tests in order to find a legendary blue rose and thus save the life of a comatose princess, win her hand in marriage and the kingdom.


Sandy, apparently you did not read my notes as I specifically say " it was not "The Thief of Bagdad"!! I am positive,
