The Count of Monte Cristo is one of the great adventure novels of the nineteenth century. But the author, Alexandre Dumas, also converted many of his fictions into riveting dramas, dividing his classic tale of revenge into four plays. In this fourth and final part, Edmond Dantes (the Count of Monte Cristo) sets out to destroy Danglars and Villefort, the other two men who had helped shanghai him to the island prison of Chateau d'If. He uses Danglars's illegitimate child, Benedetto, to secure his downfall, but loses control of his plan when Madame de Villefort begins poisoning her in-laws to allow her own son to inherit her husband's wealth. Monte Cristo must use all of his power to save Villefort's daughter, Valentine, the beloved of Maximilian Morel, the son of Monte Cristo's old benefactor. Can he find a way to outwit his enemies?
The Count of Monte Cristo is one of the great adventure novels of all time. But the author, Alexandre Dumas, also adapted his novel into four riveting plays. Part Three: The Rise of Monte Cristo is set two decades after Edmond Dantès has been unjustly imprisoned in the Château d'If. Edmond has made himself into the Count of Monte Cristo, and he now sets out to gain his revenge upon the three men who shangaied him into 14 years of prison. First on the list is Fernand Mondego, whose treacheries have brought him a fortune, a title (the Count of Morcerf), and a wife: Edmond's fiancée, Mercédès, who's long believed him dead. Monte Cristo uses his great wealth to draw a net around Fernand, gradually exposing his lies to the world. Finally, the two men must confront each other–knowing that only one of them will leave the room alive! Great action drama!
This dramatization of the classic novel is the first of four parts. In 1815 Napoleon has fled to Elba, and the Bourbons have been restored to the French throne. Young Edmond Dantes is First Mate and Acting Capt. of the merchant ship Pharoah. Everything seems bright for his future, until he's arrested for delivering a letter to Elba–a dying request of his former captain. Then three men conspire to send the innocent youth to the notorious island prison, the Chateau d'If. There Dantes meets the Abbe Faria, who gives him an education, and tells him of a fabulous treasure he's discovered. But Faria suddenly dies, and Edmond must take advantage of the sudden opportunity, or risk being imprisoned for life. He sews himself into the Abbe's burial shroud. Can he survive the plunge into the sea? An absolutely riveting drama.
