The Black Brigand: 3: The Burning Mountain
A television serial by J. Potter Brown.
Based on a story by Alexandre Dumas.
Don Rogano, Grandee of Spain, and his daughter Fiora, overpowered by outlaws and brought to the Oasis Inn, awaited the arrival of the Black Brigand himself. To their amazement the Brigand proved to be a courteous and charming man-Don Fernando, son of Don John-exiled for duelling but now living in the mountains in case at any time he could be of service to his country. In return for freedom Don Rogano promises to try to obtain a pardon for Fernando from King Karl.
Meanwhile Janella, a gypsy girl who has allied herself with the brigands, brings news of the death of some of the men and of the capture of Fernando's special friend, Francis. King Karl refuses the pardon and they decide to leave the Inn. Surrounded by a fresh detachment of soldiers their only means of escape is by an underground tunnel. But unknown to them the soldiers have been warned and are already laying a trail of gunpowder into the mouth of the tunnel.
