The Treasure of Monte Cristo Details


Often misidentified as , this low-budget melodrama is tenuously related to the "Monte Cristo" legend as laid down by novelist Alexandre Dumas. Glenn Langan plays Edmund Dantes, a descendant of the original Count of Monte Cristo. Working as an officer on a freighter, Dantes is forced to follow family tradition when he is falsely accused of murder and imprisoned. After escaping, Dantes tracks down the genuine villains to find out why he was set up. Lensed on location in San Francisco, Glenn Langan benefits from such reliable supporting players as Adele Jergens (whose duplicity is so transparent that one wonders how the hero could be so stupid), Steve Brodie, and former "East Side Kid" Bobby Jordan. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
