1955 is the right date for the movie, Scott, it was released in March. The book came out the year before, in August, went through two printings and was serialized in the Ladies Home Journal. It was published in paper in February, 1955. I have the second paperback printing from April, which featured an inside page blurb by Anne Francis, plugging the movie.
