The Count of Monte Cristo (Dramatized) | [Orson Welles]

The Count of Monte Cristo (Dramatized)

Starring Orson Welles, Anges Moorehead, and Ray Collins, The Count of Monte Cristo is a tale of revenge and retribution. Edmond Dantès, a young, energetic sailor, is falsely accused of treason on his wedding day and incarcerated in the forbidding Château d'If. His escape and ultimate revenge on those who wronged him makes this one of the most thrilling stories in French literature, as compelling now as when it was first published in 1846.

    "Excellent"
    What made the experience of listening to The Count of Monte Cristo (Dramatized) the most enjoyable?

    I love the story - I love this old-timey scratchy quality, like we are all huddled around the radio listening to it. Only I'm in my car on the way to work cursing Jersey drivers.


    What does Orson Welles bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Um, his voice?


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When he makes his escape!
