Description by

George Dolenz stars as Edmond Dantès, the hero of Alexandre Dumas' legendary adventure novel, in this rarely-seen television series. Dantès is a man falsely imprisoned for a crime he did not commit. Escaping from jail, he creates the new identity of 'The Count of Monte Cristo' to track down the men who framed him. Each episode would take Dantès, along with his friends Jacopo and Rico, to a new exotic locale. The Italian-born Dolenz (1908-1963) was discovered by famed produced Howard Hughes and signed to RKO in the 1940's, billed as the "European Leading Man". He is best remembered as the father of Monkees lead singer Micky Dolenz. Co-star Nick Cravat had a circus acrobat act with a pre-fame Burt Lancaster in the 1930s; they billed themselves as 'Lang and Cravat'. Lifelong friends, he would appear with Lancaster in nine of his films, including The Flame and the Arrow (1950) and The Crimson Pirate (1952).

BURGUNDY: An unscrupulous businessman is forcing farmers to pay him tribute.

MAJORCA: Dantès meets a woman who says she is the Countess of Monte Cristo -- his wife!

SICILY: The Count and Jacopo pose as deckhands on a smugglers' ship.

A MATTER OF JUSTICE: Dantès comes to the aid of a soldier accused of treason by his superior officers.
