According to a news item in Los Angeles Examiner, in 1936, producer Edward Small was ready to produce this film and wanted actor Robert Donat to play the lead. Production, however, did not begin until June 1940. For additional information on films based on the Alexandre Dumas character, consult the entry for the 1934 film The Count of Monte Cristo, which was also directed by Rowland V. Lee and produced by Edward Small (see AFI Catalog of Feature Films, 1931-40; F3.0824). This film was nominated for an Academy Award in the category of Interior Decoration (Black and White).
