Description

An edited-together version of the two part mini-series of the classic tale inspired by Homer's 'Illiad', which featured exotic locales, an international cast, and state-of-the-art special effects. The world's most beautiful woman (and the 'face that launched a thousand ships'), Helen, wife of the King of Sparta, is unhappy in her marriage and longs for Paris, Prince of Troy: a young man she has only seen in a vision. When Troy abducts her and spirits her off to the safety of his father's kingdom, a ten-year war ensues between Sparta and Troy which finally ends with the ill-fated Trojan horse incident.
