Brand New 2K Master! He led the Apache nation against Geronimo’s pillaging hordes! The two sons of Apache leader Cochise (Jeff Chandler, Broken Arrow) have conflicting views of the white men who trespass their land. Taza (Rock Hudson, Bend of the River) argues for peaceful co-existence, but his younger brother Naiche (Rex Reason, This Island Earth) joins Geronimo (Ian MacDonald, High Noon) on the warpath. One of the few westerns made in the 1950s that attempted to present a positive view of Native Americans, Taza, Son of Cochise, co-starring Barbara Rush (Magnificent Obsession), was the second of eight movies that Hudson made with director Douglas Sirk (The Tarnished Angels). Filmed on location in Utah, the natural setting of the desert is one of the movie’s many assets which is vividly captured by the glorious Technicolor cinematography by the great Russell Metty (Spartacus, Midnight Lace). This special edition includes both the 3-D and 2-D versions of the film. 3-D restoration by 3-D Film Archive!
