Son of Monte Cristo, The (1940)

Send to Chromecast

In 1865, General Gurko Lanen is dictator of “Lichtenburg” in the Balkans. The rightful ruler, Grand Duchess Zona (Joan Bennett), hopes to get aid from Napoleon III of France. The visiting Count of Monte Cristo falls for Zona and undertakes to help her, masquerading as a foppish banker and a masked freedom fighter. The rest is rapid-fire intrigue and derring-do. This reminds me of the afternoon swashbucklers I used to watch in the afternoon at naptime when I was a kid.
