Storyline

Le journaliste Fandor invente une interview avec le mystérieux Fantomas. Fantomas s'indigne et enlève le journaliste pour le contraindre à dire la vérité et comme Fandor ne fait pas cela, il se déguise en Fandor et avec son visage il réalise un sensationnel vol de bijoux. Le Commissaire Juve arrête Fandor, croyant qu'il est Fantomas, mais il est à son tour arrêté quand Fantomas fait un autre coup, cette fois-ci déguisé en Juve. Mais les deux sont libérés par Fantomas lui-même. Le célèbre voleur n'a-t-il pas une raison cachée pour son acte de générosité ? Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

Jean Marais in a dual role frustrates himself and Commissioner Louis de Funes
21 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Fantomas" is, in some respects, very good escapist fare, bearing the signs of the light-hearted comedic 60s fare that engulfed spy spoof and master criminal plots.

There are 5 main characters in this farce. Jean Marais plays a journalist who is trying to sell copy about a master criminal, Fantomas, whom he also plays. Fantomas, like Mabuse, is very clever. He dons face masks to throw everyone off the track. Marais falls in with photographer Mylene Demongeot. She's very pretty, has a terrific figure, and shows that she means to be taken seriously for her talent, which includes being a comedienne. The bumbling, loud and persistent police commissioner who is after Fantomas is played by Louis de Funes. His straight man assistant is also notable, played by Jacques Dynam.

There are 3 chases in this film. All are excellent and two are extraordinary. The stunt work is exceptionally well-crafted, in every way. This raises the films greatly. The climactic chase is a very long one that involves, among other things, cars, train, helicopter, and boats. The ending is arranged so that a sequel could follow.
