La guerra di Troia, internationally released as The Trojan Horse and The Wooden Horse of Troy, is a 1961 Italian historical drama film set in the tenth and final year of the Trojan War. The film focuses primarily on the exploits of the Trojan hero Aeneas during this time. The film was directed by Giorgio Ferroni and starred Steve Reeves as Aeneas and John Drew Barrymore as Odysseus.
In 2004 it was restored and shown as part of the retrospective "Storia Segreta del Cinema Italiano: Italian Kings of the Bs" at the 61st Venice International Film Festival.
The battle scenes were shot in Yugoslavia. Many scenes were reused in the same director's 1964 film The Lion of Thebes.
