Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Sword of Monte Cristo picks up where the Dumas original leaves off. The titular sword is not only valuable in itself, but also provides clues to the whereabouts of the Count of Monte Cristo's missing fortune. The conniving chief minister of France (Berry Kroeger) will stop at nothing to gain possession of the sword. He is challenged by an officer (George Montgomery) loyal to emperor Louis Napoleon (David Bond). Aiding the officer is a beautiful countess (Paula Corday), whose true intentions are in doubt until the final scenes. Sword of Monte Cristo was produced independently by Edward Alperson and released by 20th Century-Fox.
