Quotes from

Jacopo: When I found out what I could about a person, it made a good little boy out of me.

Danglars: I'm tried of playing second fiddle to Rothschild, Laurenti and Monte Cristo! From now on when we meet, I want THEM to take their hats off first!

Edmond Dantes: [Mercedes has just shown him the false death certificate] I thought there must be something like this somewhere.
Mercedes de Rosas: I've had it ever since... for many years.
Edmond Dantes: Well, it speaks the truth. Edmond Dantes is dead.
Mercedes de Rosas: Then who is this Count de Monte Cristo who closely resembles him?
Edmond Dantes: The resemblance has been noted by no one but you. He is, in fact, to answer your question, a person so utterly unlike a man named Dantes they might have been born of different parents. Even the soul is not the same.
Mercedes de Rosas: I can believe that.

Facts about

The ending is changed from Dumas's original novel to make it more upbeat. In the novel, Edmond does not marry Mercedes, because she feels too much has passed between them. Instead, he marries Princess Haydee, who has fallen in love with him. In the 1934 film (and in some other film versions), there is not even a hint of romantic interest between Edmond and Haydee.
Robert Donat made his only trip to Hollywood during the production of this film. Due mainly to his poor health, he was unable to travel to Hollywood again to film any of his other roles.
