Default Chapter 5 Parse Error

I am getting a parse error on line 45 of the code below, this is from chapter 5 in the forms examples. Not sure why it loks fine to me, and the error is not giving anything else like what it is expecting which usually happens with parse errors. I have bolded the code which is line 45 that is causing the error. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance:

<?php
   if ( $_POST['type'] == "Movie:Movie" &&
        $_POST['MovieType'] == ""){
      header("Location:form4.php");
   }
   $title = $_POST['Submit']." ".$_POST['type']." : ".$_POST['Name'];
   $name = $_POST['Name'];
   $name[0] = strtoupper( $name[0]);
?>
<html>
<head>
   <TITLE><?php echo $title?></TITLE>
</head>
<body>
<FORM action="form4.php?step=2" method="post">
   <input type="hidden" name="type" value="<?php echo $type[1]?>">
   <input type="hidden" name="action" value="<?php echo $_POST['Submit']?>">
   <table border=0 width="750" cellspacing=1 cellpadding=3 bgcolor="#353535" align="center">
      <tr>
         <td bgcolor="#ffffff" width="30%">
            Movie Name
         </td>
         <td bgcolor="#ffffff" width="70%">
            <?php echo $name?>
            <input type="hidden" name="Name" value="<?php echo $name?>">
         </td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
         <td bgcolor="#ffffff">
            Movie Type
         </td>
         <td bgcolor="#ffffff">
            <?php echo $_POST['MovieType']?><br />
            <input type="hidden" name="type" value="Movie: <?php echo $_POST['MovieType']?>">
         </td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
         <td bgcolor="#ffffff">
            Movie Year
         </td>
         <td bgcolor="#ffffff">
            <SELECT name="MovieYear">
               <option value="" SELECTED>Select a year...</option>
<?php
for ($year=date("Y"); $year >= 1970 ;$year--){
?>
<option value="<?php echo $year?>"><?php echo $year?></option>
<?php
}
?>
            </SELECT>
         </td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
         <td bgcolor="#ffffff">
            Movie Description
         </td>
         <td bgcolor="#ffffff">
            <textarea name="Desc" rows="5" cols="60"></textarea>
         </td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
         <td bgcolor="#ffffff" colspan=2 align="center">
            <INPUT type="SUBMIT" name="SUBMIT" value="Add">
         </td>
      </tr>
   </table>
</FORM>
</body>
</html>

Just solved my problem, which was the single - so mine now works and as far as I can tell is exactly the same as yours.

Which admittedly is not a lot of help, sorry.
