HELEN OF TROY

Directed by Robert Wise
Starring Rossana Podesta, Jack Sernas, Stanley Baker and Brigitte Bardot

(1956) Jack Sernas’s Paris and Rossana Podesta’s Helen scamper off to Troy, but here it’s more elopement than abduction, as the bad guy Greeks attack. Top Welsh/Brit badass Stanley Baker’s Achilles squares off with good guy Harry Andrews as Hector and with Brigitte Bardot as Helen’s handmaiden. 35mm. Approx. 118 min. 

HANNIBAL

Directed by Edward G. Ulmer
Starring Victor Mature

(1960) Victor Mature’s Carthaginian legend ramrods his elephant spearheaded army over the Alps to that showdown with Rome. Filmed in Yugoslavia with 12,000 extras, Ulmer’s sole widescreen color epic. 35mm print courtesy Academy Film Archive. Approx. 103 min.  

“Enough sheer spectacle, gore and quasi-historical action to excite.”
