    Can you hook a player up to that, or does it only play files on your computer?

    You can't hook a Blu-ray player directly to a HMD like these but with a good WiFi connection you can stream files from your computer and with an app like Virtual Desktop you can view any movie that you can view on your monitor. The Cyberlink PowerDVD program also lets you stream your videos to a headset. There are lots of ways other than just sideloading files.

    Can't wait! I know wishing for 2020 means I'm another year older, but I can't help it! Truly excited to get another Golden Age 3D movie.

    Out of curiosity, what aspect ratio was chosen for the Blu-ray release of Taza, Son of Cochise? 1.85:1 or 2.00:1? Not that it matters much because both could be considered correct.

    2.00-1. Unlike many studio titles after the widescreen transition, we had enough inter-studio memos to be quite certain on this.

    I bought a spare on eBay last year. My original went south last week.

    I zoomed in to 1.77 on the 1.33 Sensio 3D DVD and it looks fine. I think Bob said the Sensio DVD was also zoomed in. 2.00 should look good.

    Super excited about Taza! Any Golden Age 3D is okay in my book, but a western is awesome. Still hopeful for The Glass Web, and anything that Warner Brothers controls.

    From what I understand the German version has non English word balloons whereas the Italian version has the original English version.

    I can verify the German word balloons on the German version. Wish I had known the Italian version existed. Still really pissed at Sony for not releasing this Academy Award winner in the US. Customer satisfaction be damned in 21st century America. Sony has worked very hard to erase 3D from their site and products.

    “We’ll tell you what you want and when you’re satisfied.”-IMHO, the attitude of many American merchants these days.

    So true. And the other ubiquitous message at a brick and mortar retail establishment is "you can get it online." That's why I dragged myself out to your store so I could go home and shop online. There is a true corporate death wish out there in the retail sector.

    It is a great pleasure to introduce the newest members of our 3-D Film Archive team.

    Hillary Hess has contributed immensely to several commentary tracks and written detailed articles for our website at www.3dfilmarchive.com. At present, she is curating a fabulous visual essay of "Mid-Century Memories in Kodachrome 3-D" for the upcoming 2020 Blu-ray release of 3-D RARITIES II from Flicker Alley.

    Austin Quintana is the newest member of our team. He is an incredibly talented photographer/filmmaker and just designed ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET CASTLE FILMS; our latest non-stereoscopic project for Shout Factory. He recently acquired a 35mm Stereo Realist and you'll be hearing a lot more from Austin in the future. Check out his excellent work behind the camera at www.austinquintana.com

    Mike Ballew has also shared his vast expertise on various articles and commentary tracks. He is currently writing the liner notes for 3-D RARITIES II and will be adding some fascinating new information to the commentary track for TAZA, SON OF COCHISE. Through extensive research in studio files, he has documented an unknown camera rig built exclusively for that important Technicolor/widescreen production from Douglas Sirk.

    As we approach our sixth year of restoring vintage 3-D gems for Blu-ray and theatrical release, we have nearly a dozen features (and several other surprises) in the restoration pipeline. Hillary, Austin and Mike will each play an important role on our upcoming projects.

    Please join me in welcoming this VERY talented group aboard our third-dimensional bandwagon!
