Jacques Dynam Jacques Dynam (Inspector Bertrand) was fourth-billed in the previous two movies as his character has a lot of screen time. In this movie, he is 12th in the cast, even behind actors who have only one scene like Robert Dalban (newspaper director) and Rita Renoir (cameo getting off the plane). See more »
When the seance is going to start, a thunder roars - but this happens just *before* Juve touches Lady MacRashley's finger, which is supposed to mark the start of the seance. See more »
The third of the series spends too much time and energy on Inspector Juve's more hysterical than usual performance being scared by fake ghosts in the style of the Three Stooges or Laurel & Hardy. The great Jean Marais has little to do as does Mylene Demongeot who has a funny bit when she kicks Marais in the butt for flirting with a sexy older woman, wife of the Scottish castle's owner and Fantomas' target for blackmail. de Fumes crazed performances as Juve can be an energy-draining experience, more in this film than in the previous two films. Over 50 during the Fantomas cycle, Marais was in great condition and did his own stunts. Demongeot is gorgeous and comedic yet sultry. A better script, more spectacular, was needed to end the trilogy worthy of Marais.
