Helen of Troy

In today's Trailers from Hell, Jack Hill guides us through "Helen of Troy."  Here's the synopsis:

The face that launched all those ships is played by the comparatively unknown Rosanna Podesta, surrounded by a distinguished cast and thousands of real extras, not pixels. This Hollywood epic shot at Cinecitta is not the movie to use for an easy book report on The Iliad, as Homer’s version of events differs from the events as depicted here. The versatile Robert Wise fills the Scope screen with intelligent spectacle, aided by memorable second unit work by Yakima Canutt and an uncredited Sergio Leone.

    Raoul Walsh also directed some second unit footage uncredited on this film as well.

    Oh fiercely, yes! Over the top .... and legendary director Wise did win three Oscars in seven nominations over his long and varied career.
