Network goes from strength to strength. Where on earth did they manage to get this old TV series from? ITC released many similar series in the 1950s such as 'The Adventures Of Robin Hood' with Richard Greene and 'William Tell' with Conrad Phillips, but 'The Count Of Monte Cristo' has not been seen since it was originally releaed in 1956. As such, it is all but forgotten -- until now.
Based on the novel by Alexandre Dumas, this is essentially a continuation of the Count's adventures and stars George Dolenz, the father of Mickey Dolenz. Perhaps Mr. Dolenz did not have the charisma of Richard Greene and the like, but this is still a good series and it is nice to see it resurrected after so many years. And, of course, there are appearances by many well-known television actors of the time, including Conrad Phillips.
All 39 episodes are presented here and the picture and sound quality is excellent.
Perhaps at some stage in the future, Network will be able to release 'Sword Of Freedom', another good series which starred Edmond Purdom and has not been seen since it was first shown in 1957.

First broadcast in 1956, this swashbuckling early ITC series was adapted from the novel by Alexandre Dumas, in which Edmond Dantes is wrongly imprisoned, and is then informed by a dying fellow inmate of an hidden hoard of treasure on the Islet of Monte Cristo. Dantes eventually escapes from captivity, and with his new found wealth he adopts a new aristocratic identity.

The series begins with Dantes having already acquired his new identity, as we then follow the various adventures of Dantes, (played by George Dolenz) as he fights injustice across a Europe faced with threats of revolution, plus various feuds and political intrigue.
Joining Dantes in his escapades are friends Jacopo, (Nick Cravat) and Rico (played by Robert Cawdron), don't be deceived by Jacopo's small stature, in a fight he can certainly look after himself as well as anyone.

As with other ITC series like "The Adventures Of Robin Hood", and "The Buccaneers" to mention just two, this is yet another very enjoyable adventure series, with guest stars including Stratford Johns, Patrick Troughton and Adrienne Corri.
This complete series of 39, twenty-five minute black and white episodes features very good picture and sound quality. No extras or subtitles. A brief synopsis of every episode is featured on the inside of the single-size DVD case, which holds the 5 discs.

For fans of other early ITC adventure/swashbuckling TV series, this is worth a look.

Incredibly enough, the formidable Tod Slaughter DOES appear in a very short role in episode #22, "The Talleyrand Affair". I said "incredibly" as he isn't mentioned in the final credits (neither are Charles Lloyd-Pack and Michael Mulcaster, incidentally). Tod is seen as an inkeeper in one scene. The fact that his name isn't mentioned is not only shameful being given his notoriety, even in 1955, as in 1954 for instance he was credited second immediately after the star of the series in "Moral Murder", an episode of "Fabian of the Yard", although he was on screen for only two minutes, in two scenes. British screen credits are sometimes strange!
