The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas

There are two movie posters, one play poster and one book cover. In all of them I found that the common element someone looking like they are planning something or that they know something someone else doesn’t know. Which I found to be interesting because in 3 out of the 4 pictures it is Edward … Continue reading

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (5)

Danglars is the mastermind behind everything that is happening.

I already dislike the character Danglars because … Continue reading
