In this swashbuckler teeming with sword-slinging action, Louis Hayward portrays the son of Edmond Dantès, the legendary Count of Monte Cristo. The younger Count gallantly comes to the rescue of a Balkans duchess (Joan Bennett) when the scheming Gen. Gurko Lanen (George Sanders) decides to seize power in her country and add insult to injury by forcing her to marry him. This grand Napoleonic saga co-stars Florence Bates, Clayton Moore. 102 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English.
