William Conrad as a swordsman

In the movie The Sword of Monte Cristo, William Conrad plays one of the bad guys, a major who supports the plotting first minister of the country. He does a little sword fighting, but he just was not made for the role, being short and stout. (He gets killed in the climactic scene.) He had a magnificent radio voice and stayed very busy on the airways, but as a dashing figure he did not cut the mustard.
