Trivia

Mylène Demongeot later claimed that a fourth episode called "Fantomas à Moscou" ( "Fantomas in Moscow") was planned to follow, but apart from the fact that Jean Marais was tired of feeling second billed after the then conformed star Louis de Funès, the project failed to materialize because the trio of leading actors had grown far too expensive.

Fantomas vs. Scotland Yard
7 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, I recall this one as sort of a Faydeau farce. The first two ('Fantomas' in 1964 and 'Fantomas Returns' the following year) were authentic French action adventure dramas created in direct competition to the 007 craze then sweeping France. They had James Bondish plots with a great deal of humour by Louis de Fumes. The final, Scotland Yard installment of this 1964-1966 trilogy was light on plot and heavy on comedy.

Still, the cinemascope color photography was stunning in all three films. And where else can one see a Scottish castle's tower suddenly turned into a rocket launch pad?
