Sword of Freedom (adventure, starring Edward Purdom)

    (Syndicated, 1957)

    [an extravagantly lavish series of sets were the backdrop for
     this tale of the Italian Renaissance; Edward Purdom starred
     as the lead character named "Marco del Monte" (no relation
     to Del Monte vegetables we assume :-) The character was a
     painter by day and freedom fighter by night; his nemesis 
     was the Medici family, suppresive patrons of the arts; And
     for good measure, the character of Count Machiavelli was
     portrayed by Kenneth Hyde; the love interest Angelica was
     played by Adrienne Corri; The series was filmed in Europe
     and distributed in the U.S. by Official Films]
