ⓘ The Count of Monte Cristo (1956 TV series)

The Count of Monte Cristo is a 1956 British cult swashbuckler adventure television series produced by ITC Entertainment/TPA and adapted very loosely from the novel by Alexandre Dumas by Sidney Marshall. It premiered in the UK in early 1956 and ran for 39 thirty-minute episodes dramatizing the continuing adventures of Edmond Dantes, the self-styled Count of Monte Cristo, during the reign of Louis Philippe I dOrleans, King of the French from 1830 to 1848. The first twelve episodes were filmed in the United States, at the Hal Roach studios, with the rest being filmed at ITCs traditional home of Elstree.

ITC produced a film based on the same source-material, The Count of Monte-Cristo, in 1975.
