Steoh, if you read the question, it says the DVD was released in 2006..

As this film was so old I thought that the DVD would have been released long befiore 2006, it being a classic and all.

Saying that, had you asked me, I'd have said the film was released towards the end of the 1950's so that was wrong too  :lol:

Thanks again dave, always good fun  ;D
