In the ensuing battle, Hector kills and many Greek soldiers fall to the Trojan defenses. Some are signaled near the end of Mr. The scene where Achilles washes his face, but none of the dirt and blood comes off as well as the closeups of his battle-time dripping helmet, and the face of Hector's corpse crusted with sand and grit were among the many realistic touches.
