The Campbell’s Playhouse revives for you the world’s greatest romance, The Count of Monte Cristo. In 1814 Edmund Dantes was a twenty year-old sailor and has everything going for him until in their jealousy two friends frame him for treason and he is arrested on the night of his wedding and thrown in to jail and left to ruin.

After many years in his dungeon he escapes and as the Count Of Monte Cristo he exacts his revenge on the men who have stolen his life.

Orson Welles plays a compelling part in the lead role of Dantes.
