The film is set in 1759 at Fort Ticonderoga during the French and Indian War.[4]


As war is raging across 18th-century colonial America, a band of famed native fighters join British forces for an assault on a French stronghold. Western, originally filmed in 3-D, starring George Montgomery and Joan Vohs.


Production notes

William Castle says Katzman was inspired to make the film by the success of Bwana Devil. Castle says he "decided to throw every goddam thing I could think of at the camera" in the movie.[5]

3-D supervision was by M.L. Gunzburg, creator of the Natural Vision 3-D system that had initiated the 3-D boom, previously used on Bwana Devil and House of Wax.[6] The film was shot at Columbia Studios and on location in Utah and Southern California.[7]

Box office

Fort Ti earned an estimated $2.6 million domestically during its first year of release.[8]


In 1982, Fort Ti became the first 3-D film to be broadcast on television in the United Kingdom. The following year, it became the first 3-D film to be broadcast on television in the United States along with the Three Stooges 3-D short Pardon My Backfire.[1]
