The Heroes (also known as Gli eroi, Les héros and Los héroes millonarios) is a 1973 Italian war-comedy film directed by Duccio Tessari.[2][3]



Yul Brynner was announced to play the lead but pulled out.[1]

Part of the film production was done in the Egyptian Western Desert, several miles near the pyramid of Mydoom. A small Carson City was built with river Nile mud on a woven reed and palm baskets but looked authentic from a distance. The city was full scale at the entrance but half-scale behind it.
