The Count of Monte Cristo 1956
"The Count of Monte Cristo" was a television series adapted very loosely from the novel by Alexandre Dumas, also author of "The Three Musketeers" and "The Man in the Iron Mask".

In the original story, a young merchant sailor by the name of Edmond Dantes finds himself imprisoned in France's infamous island fortress prison, The Chateau d'If, after being framed for treason. He spends the next twelve years of his life plotting revenge against the conspirators who ruined his life, and after befriending the aged Abbe Faria, comes into possession of knowledge of the whereabouts of a fabulous horde of wealth on the isle of Monte Cristo, situated off the coast of Italy. Dantes then sets about forging a new identity for himself: the fabulously wealthy Count of Monte Cristo. Reborn into French high society, he sets about taking his revenge, becoming involved in a series of incredible adventures.
