Today, more than 80% of silent cinema is considered lost forever. Some films were claimed by the flammable and unstable film stock of the day. Others were, once upon a time, thought to be worth less than the cost of keeping them. Yet, miraculously, uniquecopies of celebrated films previously thought lost are occasionally found and restored to delight a new generation.

This release is possible through the graciousness of Warner Bros. and Sony Pictures. In Monte Cristo (1922), adapted from the novel by Alexandre Dumas, and directed by Emmett J. Flynn, Gilbert is Edmond D
