Future horror-film entrepreneur William Castle warmed the director's
chair for Fort Ti. Set in the 18th century, the film recounts the exploits of
Rogers' Rangers, a band of adventurers devoted to seeking out a
"northwest passage" through Canada. At this juncture, however, Major
Rogers (Howard Petrie) is more concerned with helping the British forces
at Fort Ticonderoga during a series of French and Indian raids. Top billing
is bestowed upon George Montgomery as Captain Pedediah Horn,
Rogers' right-hand man. The film boasts two leading ladies: Joan Vohs, as
a suspected French spy, and Phyllis Fowler as a married Indian woman
who falls in love with Captain Horn. Fort Ti was filmed in 3D, and in typical
William Castle fashion the stereoscopic gimmick is exploited to the hilt.
