Storyline

Edmond Dantes, a young sailor in the service of the Pharaoh, prior to a long voyage, takes leave of his invalid father and his sweetheart, Mercedes. The tender farewell with Mercedes arouses the jealous hatred of Fernand, a Catalan fisherman, secretly in love with Mercedes. Dantes gives Mercedes a brooch (which later again figures in the story) and sails away. In mid-sea the captain of the Pharaoh suddenly dies and entrusts Dantes with a private letter from General Murat to the exiled emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte, at Elba. Danglars, the supercargo, overhears the captain's dying request, and keeps the knowledge in the event of future need. When the vessel reaches Elba, Dantes delivers the letter to the deposed emperor, and promises to deliver Napoleon's reply to Noirtier, of the Bonaparte Committee. In Dantes' absence Fernand urges his hopeless suit of Mercedes. On the return of the Pharaoh, Morell, its owner, makes Dantes captain of the vessel, a post which Danglars had hoped to secure...

An early "participation" deal
21 February 2009 | by edalweberSee all my reviews

In Kenneth Macgowen's book"Behind the Screen" he mentions some interesting facts about this movie.According to Macgowen, James O'Neill was the author of the dramatization which he acted on stage and was used in the film.O'Neill received 20% of the profits from this movie for his services and use of his dramatization.Although the original novel was, of course, in the public domain, the Selig version of the year before apparently infringed on O'Neill's dramatization.O'Neill took Selig to court and won a favorable decision.Macgowan's book also illustrates a financial document from Famous Players,then recently discovered, giving an exact breakdown of costs and profits.This was a statement of 1916 indicating final payment to O'Neill from the last run of the movie.Macgowan also mentions that in some old movie histories the release of the O'Neill version had to be delayed because of the rival movie, but according to the statement, this was not true.
