Dear Eileen,

this title is available in PAL-regions, both versions with a commentary
by cinematographer Jack Cardiff.

UK: http://www.sendit.com/video/item/7000000063509

Here is a comparison between the British and a Spanish version

France - 2 disc colectors edition:
http://www.amazon.fr/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00007ELQB/qid=1095961510/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_2_1/402-6096440-3208154
plus 2 documentaries from the Hollywood Remembers series: Humphrey
Bogart (2000) (25 min.) and Katharine Hepburn (1998) (25:00).

For a worldwide searching of different versions of a title on DVD I
would like to recommend this non-commercial Danish site made by Ole
Kofoed: http://www.dvd-basen.dk
(although many titles from smaller companies are not covered)

With kind regards
