Bob has said that if Taza and Wings sell well, four or five more 1950's 3D titles will be released. Kino has said that westerns do not sell well but they are releasing Pillars of the Sky.Please, everybody who wants the classic-3D spigot kept open --buy this title even if (like me...) you're not a big westerns fan! Sales of Wings may be crucial to maintaining Kino's interest in distributing more 3d titles.
And unfortunately Bob has indicated Kino (last I heard) was disappointed in Taza's sales....-Newly Restored in 3-D

And Taza and Wings are also both 3D westerns. Aren't there any titles from other genres from that period that could be released in 3D?Bob has said that if Taza and Wings sell well, four or five more 1950's 3D titles will be released.

There are other 3D titles from the 1950's that are not westerns but, the ones that Kino might have access to are from Universal and I'm pretty sure (I could be wrong) they are westerns.And Taza and Wings are also both 3D westerns.

I bought Taza and I'll buy Wings, but I'd likely be more interested in a non-western genre.
Wings is also not yet available for pre-order at the Kino site for some reason.
Can't miss that one...just ordered!
not all 3d classics are bad. Sadi Thompson, Kiss Me, Kate, Those Redheads from Seattle , Gog, Money from Home, still 2d only, Mad magician, Taza son of Cochese were all excellent film classic fo the 50's 3 to 3 and a half stars except Kiss me Kate and Sadie were 4 stars. Cat women in the moon, dull and boring, and Robot monster were turkeys as films. Robot monster was so bad that they had to include a 3d short to make up for the poor narrative. Those producers were exploiting the process for quick profit thus hurting it . Now if your not a fan of classic films '50s and earlier that is understandable cause your prefer modern 3d film, like Jurassic world part 1 and 2, probably. The thing is that like seeing a technicolor film in black n white, it was meant to be seen in technicolor -two or three-tone the movie may look bad cause it's not being seen the right way, even though the movie is good . The same thing on widescreen and stereo.Unless one had a binary problem with one's eyes or they only got one eye a 3d movie is meant to be seen in 3d, not 2d. If seen in 2d no matter how much a budget it was made and the acting is good because it's not being seen the proper way it's going to look like a bad movie.Just as Cinerama or Tod AO films are meant to be seen on curve screen or Smilebox because it was made that way.So, I take it this is actually a decent film?
As much as I love 3D, a lot of these 50s films that were filmed in the format are real duds.
Wings of the Hawk probably represents the end of Universal's deal with Kino for Golden Age 3D titles; the only remaining Golden-Age 3D Universal title that has not received a blu ray release is The Glass Web which, unfortunately, is highly unlikely for a blu ray release due to that annoying music-rights issue.There are other 3D titles from the 1950's that are not westerns but, the ones that Kino might have access to are from Universal and I'm pretty sure (I could be wrong) they are westerns.
I understand they have found the original 3 channel Stereo for this release.I’ve found a lot to like in just about all of the 3D titles of this era. I’m pretty sure I’ve actually seen this one and if it’s the movie I’m thinking of, I remember enjoying it quite a bit.
I was guessing that Kino might do a deal with Sony for their 3D titles (see below) if the sales of Taza and Wings went well..., and Columbia, nearly all of whose remaining titles are westerns. Neither Kino nor 3D Film Archive has a deal for these titles and I'm not expecting one -- especially if Kino Insider's response to sales on Taza was merely "OK."
