I've never read the book, and saw the 2002 version and it became one of my all time favorite movies. Recently, I've watched the 1975 and 1934 versions. They are all similar, but there are some major differences. For example, in 1934 and 1975, Morrell and the ship's captain were a Bonaparte supporter. In 2002, they were not...well, Morell was not, but the captain may have been. In 34 and 75, Mondego and Dantes were rivals. 2002, they were friends. In 75, Mercedes was a ***** who never forgave Dantes. In 34 and 02, they are together at the end of the movie. In 75 and 34, Dangalars became a major financial guru. In 2002, he ran Morrell our of business and took over. In 34, Mondego killed himself. 75, he was arrested, 02, Dantes killed him. 34 and 75 both had courtroom scenes. 34, Mondego was on trial, 75, Villefort was on trial. In 34 and 75, Abbe told Dantes that he knew of the treasure right off the bat. 2002, he told Dantes on his death bed. So, I'm wondering how the book goes, and which is the most accurate. Anybody know?
