A fantastic adventure film recounting the exploits of, perhaps, the first caped-crusader, Judex.
26 April 2000 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A fantastic adventure film recounting the exploits of, perhaps, the first caped-crusader, Judex. After Feuillade thrilled film-goers with his crime masterpiece, LES VAMPIRES (1915/16), he took a more light-handed approach with JUDEX extolling virtue rather than celebrating crime. Again, fresh from her success as Irma Vep in LES VAMPIRES, the beautiful MUSIDORA appeared as the wicked governess/adventuress Diana Monti. MARCEL LEVESQUE, Mazamette of LES VAMPIRES, also co-stars with Rene Creste as Judex. Watch for a very early form of television used by Judex in his cliff-side hide-out!
