I watched this movie tonight for the first time in 3D. Really enjoyed the 3D implementation: lots of depth and some nicely framed multi-plane images. So happy to click off another Golden Age 3D feature.

Also listened to Mike Ballew's excellent 3D discussion featurette and the audio commentary with Del Valle and Joyner: one more rooted in film discussion and less in gossipy revelations.

I read that the sales of Taza son of Cochise was moderate and kino was disappointed and hopes wings of the hawk makes u or no more 3D releases
This is typical of even a medium size business to take advantage of deregulations to increase their greedy profit by downsizing on a long term profit. Even the corporate arts these days don't want to make a profit in the long run. Sure, Taza son of Cochise is not making a quick big profit. In 2D it would not neither . I also get the feeling that the anti 3 D forces might be making threats of boycotting Lover or maybe they might be getting threats by deregulated wall street investors ,maybe. It can't make a big fast profit cause it's an average film. It also has white actors portraying the Indian. Even though it a compliment , not a put down, current politicos are promoting the portrayal of ethnic people even if it's a compliment as being racist, but, that isn't the main reason. Sales would increased more if they have a duel version ,Polaroid and anaglyph, DVD version the same with 2D,is that those that don't have a 3 D set up would be a able to we it in that process. By realistic standards it is making good profit ,profit in the long run.

Let's keep politics out of this discussion. As to the sales question, I think it has more to do with this being a mediocre film at best. I watched the BD twice back in May as I listened to the audio commentary too. I'm a big fan of westerns and grew up watching 1950's westerns during my youth in the 1960's. This particular western despite Sirk's best effort isn't very good. It has some entertaining sequences and the 3-D is very good, but that doesn't make up for the film as a whole.
