We present a classic one-hour radio drama this time - one of Orson Welles’ Mercury Theater on the Air adaptations. Alexandre Dumas’ The Count of Monte Cristo first appeared in 1844 and was an immediate success. Welles portrays Edmond Dantès, a young man unjustly imprisoned for many years who uses an immense fortune to wreck revenge against his enemies. This broadcast begins with a news bulletin about the Czechoslovakian Crisis of 1938, which ultimately drew England into World War II.
