Synopsis

Maurice Geraghty directs this 1950s adventure following the battle for the sword of the Count of Monte Cristo. The sword is vital to the future of France, not only as a symbol and as a weapon, but because it may hold clues to the whereabouts of the Count's missing riches. Emperor Louis Napoleon III (David Bond) duly orders that the weapon be found, with Minister Charles La Roche (Berry Kroeger) and Captain Renault (George Montgomery) among those who dedicate themselves to the enterprise. However, with Lady Christianne (Rita Corday), an alluring countess who leads a double existence as a masked vigilante, also among those in search of the sword, the battle for control of the famed weapon seems certain to be intense.
