Crew
Directed by Louis Feuillade


Based on the phenomenally popular French pulp novellas, Louis Feuillade's outrageous, ambitious FANTÔMAS series became the gold standard of espionage serials in pre-WWI Europe, and laid the foundation for such immortal works as Feuillade's own Les Vampires and Fritz Lang's Dr. Mabuse films.

René Navarre stars as the criminal lord of Paris, the master of disguise, the creeping assassin in black: Fantômas. Over the course of five feature films (which combined to form a 5 1/2-hour epic), Fantômas, along with his accomplices and mistresses, are pursued by the equally resourceful Inspector Juve (Edmund Bréon) and his friend, journalist Jerôme Fandor (Georges Melchior).

THE FILMS

  • Fantômas in the Shadow of the Guillotine (1913, 54 Min.)
  • Juve vs. Fantômas (1913, 62 Min.)
  • The Murderous Corpse (1913, 90 Min.)
  • Fantômas vs. Fantômas (1914, 60 Min.)
  • The False Magistrate (1914, 71 Min.)

Reviews

What the spectator of 1913 would have experienced as heart-pounding sensation now seems as beautiful and gratuitous as a modern dance or abstract sculpture. - The New York Times
