Synopsis:
Setting the standard for his later lighthearted biopics The Private Life of Henry VIII and Rembrandt, producer-director Alexander Korda steadfastly refuses to take any of The Private Life of Helen of Troy seriously. Maria Corda, wife of the director, plays the title character as a fetchingly under dressed coquette, oblivious to all the political turmoil she's causing when she allows the handsome Paris to kidnap her. Meanwhile, poor King Menelaus, Helen's husband, stands by in stoic silence, just as he's done on previous occasions when his wife succumbed to the charms of various sexy suitors.
Finally galvanized into action, Menelaus reclaims his bride, who seems none the worse for wear for her experiences.
