I seem to be passing thru a period of visiting Edmond Dantes in his various incarnations. Delighted then to find a DVD collection of 12 episodes of this "lost" TV series from my childhood. Episodes are also on YouTube.

Feels a lot like Disney's ZORRO.

Try to see if you can find the fairly recent (a decade or so already )
miniseries with Gérard Depardieu. It should have an English version. It
is quite nice.

If you want multiple iterations, you've picked the right story!

The cogs that turn at the heart of the piece do seem to be resistant to spoilage.

I loved the 1975 version with Richard Chamberlain as a child and I very much liked the 2002 version with Jim Cavaziel -- and it was exactly the same aspects that resonated in me for both, despite the decades between.

My version, the one from my chidhood, is the 1954 one with Jean Marais. A movie, and not a tv, version, this being said. 

Jean Marais being one of my favorite actors, this isn't a surprise.
