    Too bad they couldn't have gotten out the 3D version, but at least this movie and a few other Sirks are out on DVD. (But what's up with "Thunder On The Hill"? They couldn't have done "Sign of Ther Pagan" instead?) "Taza" has a buff, rough-and-ready Rock Hudson in his early prime and it's interesting how much his screen persona was alraedy in place at this early stage. It's Taza's lot to be "fair and balanced" once he assumes chiefdom from his father, but the jealousy of his younger brother and the treachery of rival Geronimo make relations with the white world strained at best. Add a love triangle (again with the younger brother), and you've got a pretty formulaic action/adventure flick, but one that looks really good and moves right along. Sirk was a storyteller first and foremost, though he's widely known for those sumptuous, set-bound domestic dramas he made later, and his skill in filling those wide open spaces with both action and intimate scenes helps to make this a much better film than it might have been in other hands. Rock aquits himself well, though handsome-and-stoic is about all that's required of him. Barbara Rush plays the love interest and, once you get over (if you can) the then standard practice of white contract players in these kinds of ethnic roles, they make a good movie couple, which is probably why they were used as such more than once. I have to admit ignorance of much of the real history and Hollywood is known for playing fast and loose with the facts, but for my money "Taza" amounts to a pretty good entertainment in that Saturday-matinee kind of way. It would have been fun seeing all those arrows and tomahawks whizzing at the camera in 3D, but you can't have everything.
