Helen of Troy was a bright spot, a bold, sweeping drama set against the background of the ancient world, providing a grand canvas for his work. Steiner rose to the occasion with one of his best scores of the era, a sweeping, richly colorful and memorable body of music that, in its best moments - such as the love theme for Helen and Paris - recalls the best work of Wagner and Mahler, and even manages to anticipate the "Summer Place" theme in one spot.

Helen of Troy is a 1956 Warner Bros. WarnerColor epic film in CinemaScope, based on Homer's Iliad and Odyssey. It was directed by Robert Wise, from a screenplay by Hugh Gray and John Twist, adapted by Hugh Gray and N. Richard Nash.
Indeed, there is one scene where Helen and her handmaiden are bringing items of food and clothing to Paris and the underscored music sounds as though it were from TURANDOT. Since it would have been impossible to recreate music from the Mycenaean Age, Steiner had no other choice but to create a "flavor" of the time employing the vocabulary of his own expertise and the demands of a Hollywoood movie. He succeeded superbly
