By the Gods!

Gianni Garko, Carla Marlier and Steve Reeves, as Aeneas, in WAR OF THE TROJANS (1962)

WAR OF THE TROJANS is the British title while in the US, it was titled THE AVENGER, which is not very descriptive. If they had titled it AVENGER OF TROY or something similar it might have been better. The Italian title translates as THE LEGEND OF AENEAS. This is a sequel to THE TROJAN HORSE (1961). I like it and I'm glad it was made and while it's not on par with the first film it is still pretty good, with some memorable moments and good support from Garko. Director Giorgio Venturing made only 3 films and sometimes it shows.
