Storyline

Naturally, after his last experience, Inspector Juve winces under such rebuff as the substitution of Valgrand and the escape of Fantomas. Eventually a mysterious crime puzzles him and his assistant, Fandor. To the chief of the Criminal Investigation Department, he reports that the body of a woman, found in the house of Dr. Charles, cannot be identified. Papers bearing the name of Lady Beltham had been discovered in her clothing. Was the body that of Lady Beltham, the accomplice of Gurn, or was it the intention that people should believe that she was dead? Juve wondered why the body was found in the house of Dr. Charles. He concerns himself to watch the house, and the patience of Fandor and himself is unexpectedly rewarded. One day Dr. Charles leaves the house, and the car in which he rides is followed. Charles makes a false move. The man who leaves the closed car is not the Dr. Charles who got in. He is now a young man, with a black moustache, whereas Charles is a middle-aged man with...

The picture is of unusual strength
8 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is the second in the series of detective stories. It is interesting and at times exciting. One feature is the uncoupling of the car from the express and the close-up views of the interior. The collision of the car with the approaching express is very well done. It is studio work, but to many the idea will not occur. The struggle between the great snake and the detective is thrilling. A novel twist is given to the escape of the crook from the detective following the arrest just outside the restaurant. The use of the two false arms will stir any theater. The scenes in the haunted house are finely handled, especially the escape of the crook through his submersion in the tank and the use of the hollow bottle for a breathing tube. As a detective story the picture is of unusual strength. - The Moving Picture World, October 25, 1913
