Not very interesting, 30 May 2017
Author: Alex da Silva from United Kingdom

Louis Hayward (Edmond) is a relative of the Count of Monte Cristo and the true legal heir to the fortune that comes with this privilege. Some influential conmen send him to jail on false charges and put their replacement Barbara Britton (Angela) forward as the true legal heir to the fortune.

I only watched this film yesterday and have forgotten pretty much everything about it. So, it's not particularly good. Louis Hayward isn't really much of a lead for this and there is lots of wearing false disguises in order to get even with the bad guys.

Nothing more to say.
