Count of Monte Cristo (The)
Richard Chamberlain leads an all-star cast in this film rendition of Alexandre Dumas’ stirring classic tale of injustice, revenge and retribution.
It is the height of the Napoleonic era and for Edmond Dantes (Richard Chamberlain), life is on the perfect course. He is about to become a Captain in the Navy and marry his true love, Mercedes (Kate Nelligan). His plans are shattered by three men (Donald Pleasence, Tony Curtis and Alessio Orano), who falsely accuse him of conspiring with Napoleon. Prosecuted by the conniving de Villefort (Louis Jordan), he is sentenced to an agonising life on the isolated island fortress of Monte-Cristo. The only thing that keeps him alive is his overwhelming desire for revenge...
Arguably the definitive adaptation of Alexandre Dumas's perennial favourite novel, The Count of Monte-Cristo earned both Richard Chamberlain and Trevor Howard Emmy nominations for their performances as Edmond Dantes and Abbé Faria.
