In October 1982, this film was chosen by the ITV network in the United Kingdom as the first film to be given a television screening in 3-D. Glasses were distributed (free) with that week's TV Times magazine and were also available in selected electrical stores (at a small charge). While the screening was reasonably successful, the experiment was not repeated. See more »

How did you ever get to be a captain? By beating up every man in the regiment with your fists?

"Fort Ti" starts off well enough, with an interesting plot, which then starts to fall to pieces, with some unconvincing elements. The main female lead, Fortune Mallory, retains her glamour and an ornate hair-style despite her privations, the Rangers twice attack the French without the latter noticing their quite visible approach until the last moment, and there's some very rapid reloading of muskets off-screen during the short siege of the cave.
There's also an unnecessary three-cornered romance.
The version I saw, courtesy of Youtube, had some poor editing mid- film, with a couple of sudden leaps; this may have been due to whoever posted it messing around a bit.
In quality, well behind other films portraying the same period that come to mind: "North West Passage", "Drums along the Mohawk" and two versions of "Last of the Mohicans". But a bit better than "Mohawk".
