movies ever made." The story of Helen and Troy has been produced
several time but none of those projects have surpassed this one. The
script is excellent, smart and detailed. Mario Ammonini's score is vibrant.
The cast is strong; Steve Reeves (best known for his HERCULES) give
his best performance; and John Drew Barrymore (later to star in WAR
OF THE ZOMBIES (1965) never looked more handsome and evil as
