Best version I've seen in any language.

The film moves right along and even with just an elemental knowledge of
Spanish without subtitles (I really don't like subtitles anyway) the story
is easily followed. The acting is very good. Very little "over-acting"
which is a temptation in this kind of film. Arturo de Cordova was a good
around actor but was at his best action/adventure/romance films. I enjoy
Spanish language movies best although he handled English quite well. It's
possibly because he was more at ease in his Mexican films. I recommend
version of "The Count of Monte Cristo" highly and if the viewer needs
subtitles (no dubbing, brrrr) go with it, to have an enjoyable viewing
experience. May even not notice the subtitles after they've "gotten into"
