This review is from: The Prince Who Was a Thief [ NON-USA FORMAT, PAL, Reg.2 Import - Germany ] (DVD) This Arabian Nights film starring the young Tony Curtis and Piper Laurie is not available on DVD in this country. I remembered the movie fondly from 1951and tried to get a DVD version. This DVD is from Germany and one has a choice between German and English soundtracks. The quality is very good. The only problems are that the DVD is in PAL format and from region 2. This means that it is difficult to play in this country. I just ran it through the DVD player on my MAC, and it worked fine, although I can only change the region code a few times.

This review is from: The Prince Who Was a Thief (DVD) This movie is 60 years old and is still enjoyable today as it was when I last saw it in 1950.
