The film features Rory Calhoun as an army captain in 1815 who goes off in search of a treasure on the island of Monte Cristo.[2] It is a prequel to Alexandre Dumas' 1844 novel The Count of Monte Cristo.

The film takes the same name as an unofficial sequel novel to The Count of Monte Cristo, namely The Treasure of Monte Cristo, written by Jules Lermina in 1885. In the United States it was released under the alternative title The Secret of Monte Cristo.[3]
