  Birth of a Myth: the restoration of HONDO - 3DFPF - 3-D Film Preservation Fund a tax exempt 501(c)3 non profit ...
HONDO's 3-D success was not limited to the U.S. On February 27, 1954, it opened to capacity crowds at London's 1,734-seat Warner Theater, where it would play for five weeks and bring in over $40,000.
Wayne, he overlooked the fact that HONDO played across the country in 3-D. To be fair, he was 16 years old when it was released, and probably paid very little attention to the distribution pattern for his father's new film.
Hondo was exhibited as a traditional 2D film that year, built out of the original left-eye negative, and in the decades since, it has been seen in various home-video and broadcast versions as a standard 2D movie.” The same article repeated the misinformation about anaglyph glasses.

  hondo
Hondo Lane (John Wayne), a dispatch rider and sometime scout for the cavalry, arrives horseless and with a loyal dog (Lassie) at his side (who can smell Indians a mile away and lets no one pet him), at the isolated ranch of Angie Lowe (Geraldine Page) and her six year old son Johnny (Lee Aaker).
But Hondo sees the ranch is in disrepair and is in need of a man around the house to do the chores, and he therefore tells her that she's lying.
She then tells Hondo that her husband only married her to inherit her ranch and was a mean man. With her marriage resolved, they thereby both vow their love for each other and plan to leave the territory and start life anew in Hondo's ranch in California.

 THE CINEMA LASER DVD REVIEW-- HONDO
Based upon a story by Louis L'Amour, HONDO ($15) is a quintessential John Wayne western, one that has achieved almost mythic status because it has never been released on video and has been difficult to see over the last several decades.
HONDO stars Wayne as the part Indian title character, a former gunfighter now employed as a Calvary scout in Apache country.
With the Lowe farm in the midst of Apache country, Hondo designates himself the protector of Angie and her son and sets out to rescue them from the impending Apache raids.

Hondo is rarely seen today in its original, partial 3-D format, but that change has little effect on its central qualities: a classic Louis L'Amour story, fine supporting performances, and Wayne.
With its distinctive peppermint-striped titles, "Hondo" is John Wayne's film and he is the title character who rides out of the desert to come to the aid of a young woman and her boy at their isolated ranch against the backdrop of Apache smoke signals and war drums.
Hondo Lane is drawn to the plain yet steely Angie Lowe who is also interested in the dusty stranger but refuses to leave her ranch, instead choosing to wait for her ne'er-do-well husband who has abandoned them to their fate in Apache land.

 DVD Savant Review: Hondo (Special Collector's Edition)
L'Amour's Hondo doesn't have to carry the weight of legend ("Come back, Shane!"), nor is he charged with the Fordian task of building a new country or carving a garden out of the wilderness.
Hondo (which means 'deep' in Spanish) has definite ideas about everything and isn't interested in other philosophies -- like deciding on the spur of the moment to toss little Johnny into the creek for a 'swimming lesson.' Hondo's Tarzan attitude to problems seems completely appropriate to the time and place.
Hondo's major graces are Wayne and the adorable Geraldine Page; this movie would make a terrific double bill with The Trip to Bountiful 32 years later.
