By the Gods!

Steve Reeves as Aeneas in THE AVENGER (1962 ; aka War of the Trojans) 

Along with the DVD set of THE BIG FISHERMAN, I purchased this relatively recent release of this movie on DVD from Italy. It's basically the same print as previous versions but at a higher resolution. The big scene at the beginning available only in the French version is still missing from this cut though. So it's definitely not complete but it's the best version of this movie out there. It includes the Italian and English audio so a definite plus. You can buy it here.

I have a question for you. I have joined a relatively newer DVD outlet. Did you ever hear of ZEUS VIDEOS? They have over 75,000 titles and growing every day. They have stated that many of their movies are in original form and some are not in English. I took a chance and ordered MORGAN THE PIRATE it showed the opening credits and they stated that it is from a very good print. I also ordered WARRIOR EMPRESS and the same for this print plus the running time is a little over 105 min. I will be getting them in the mail within 2 weeks, will let you know how they pan out.

Hmm...It looks like a bootleg company. The WARRIOR EMPRESS copy is the same as the one I have. In fact, I was the first one to upload this movie on Youtube or the internet. The WARRIOR EMPRESS print starts out in widescreen but is full screen throughout.
