By the Gods!

The city of Troy seen with Achilles (Gordon Mitchell) in the foreground, from FURY OF ACHILLES (1962)

The appearance of the matte painting is interesting in that we see the city of Troy when Achilles lifts up a body. It's not a scene in which we see when a character arrives at the city after a long journey or something. It makes the scene look quite incidental which heightens its realism. It's quite clever. The city looks barren though.
