Like Wings of the Hawk, this title may have been in the queue for a while and so Kino may have been committed to getting it out. In any case, Kino itself has expressed at least some dissatisfaction with the sales performance of its 3D westerns, most recently Taza, and if you look at the sales trends on bluray.com (which can sort of serve as a microcosmic proxy for broader trends) you'll see that westerns largely underperform other genres in 3D blu ray sales.

Agreed, but it's kind of odd that Kino's next 3D release is yet another western. Maybe the only 3D titles they have are westerns?

Yes, I think that's true and the reason why they want to see how the sales are for Taza and Wings before releasing more 3D western titles.

We all love 3D here, some more than others, but we pretty much all root for its success I believe.

Then there's reality. I prefer to live in a reality-based universe. And in no reality-based universe will there be a 3D blu ray of Fort Ti or any of the other western/period-piece titles owned by Sony/Columbia. There will be no deal there. Westerns and the like don't sell well enough, according to multiple sources.

We've all got to buy Wings of the Hawk from Day 1 just to keep Kino Lorber's interest in continuing to support any classic-3D title.

But there is hope for us Golden-Age 3D enthusiasts: Root for a another deal between Kino Lorber and MGM that would get us (with an assist from 3D Film Archive) 3D blu rays of the historic (in a different sense) Bwana Devil and The Diamond Wizard. And if a few stars align, we may have a shot at getting I. the Jury. All these titles would certainly far outsell Fort Ti (sorry...), and sales drive distributors' decision to do a deal.
you can get the DVD anaglyph version from the DVD party I just ordered it. I became a 3d enthusiast when it was dead when I saw the house of wax in 3d at the popeyes buddy club at the paramount when I was a kid.for years I look at view masters from gaf
