I'm sure there are better crafted versions to hunt for before settling for this less-than. The movie has much to offer visually and deserves a better reproduction effort than this.
The film has a restored Overture which is not complete, because portions are still lost but it will give the viewer the since of what his 1956 production was when it came out. Playing Helen is Rosanna Podesta who did not speak a word of English and had to have a voice coach train her for her lines and she does an excellent job. The year before this production she co-starred with Kirk Douglas in an Italian film version of Homer's Odyssey by Carlo Ponte entitled "Ulysses". So with this film she has played in films based upon Homer's two classic works.
