When a set of mystical artifacts falls into the hands of a diabolical cult leader with plans for world domination, it’s up to the devil-may-care J.T. Striker (Tony Anthony, Comin’ at Ya!) to reclaim them. Together with a ragtag team of mercenaries, Striker must battle terrifying natural—and supernatural—enemies within a fortress-like temple where the stakes may be nothing less than the balance between good and evil. So get ready for an unforgettable adventure, with top-notch direction by Ferdinando Baldi (Django, Prepare a Coffin), thrilling score by the legendary Ennio Morricone (The Good, the Bad and the Ugly) and a fiery apocalyptic climax so real it’ll send you running for cover! This edition of Treasure of the Four Crowns comes with an eye-popping 3-D restoration by 3-D Film Archive!

TREASURE OF THE FOUR CROWNS is everything ordinary folks who to to the movies look for in a 3D movie.

Star and producer Tony Anthony, inspired by the Asian 3D movie DYNASTY (also available from Kino Lorber with a terrific 3D Film Archive Restoration), further developed the technology used in that film to create the kind of picture he wanted to see first in his COMIN’ AT YA! (1981) and in this wonderful followup.

Not only that he put his study of 3D to work developing the cameras and systems used in 3D endoscopy: https://www.amazon.com/Tony-Anthony/e/B07MGZ81T1%3Fref=dbs_a_mng_rwt_scns_share .

Clearly he was way more than a spaghetti western cowboy.

The best way to see this is with a 3D projector and a big screen, the bigger the better.

I really appreciated the audio Commentary by Jason Pichonsky.

THE 3D FILM ARCHIVE goes the distance and then some with their restorations. We see these pictures better than people saw them when they were first screened.

A wonderful bonus is the Ennio Morricone score a link to which I have provided above.

I have long had this in a Field Sequential 3D version which I converted to above/below 3D format with 3D Combine:   https://www.3dcombine.com/  .

I can now retire that.

The inclusion of an anaglyph version (Red/Cyan) means everyone who wishes to can experience this.
