Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 09/17/2010
"In the oppressively orderly culture of prewar Europe, FANTOMAS offered a fantasy of violent escape and perfect autonomy."

Description by OLDIES.com:

The Fantomas series is a silent crime film serial consisting of five episodes, based on the novels of the same name, each an hour to an hour and a half in length, which end in cliffhangers, i.e., episodes one and three end with Fantomas making a last minute escape, the end of the second movie has Fontomas blowing up Lady Beltham's manor house with Juve and Fandor, the heroes, still inside. The subsequent episodes begin with a recap of the story that has gone before. Each film is further divided into three or more chapters that do not end in cliffhangers.

Product Description:

One of the more popular silent film serials to emerge from Europe during the first half of the Twentieth Century, Louis Feuillade's FANTOMAS (1913-14) stars René Navarre as the title character, the "criminal lord" of Paris, who succeeds at pulling off one dastardly crime after another via ruthless cunning and a swift ability to slip into whatever disguise best suits the moment. This box set contains all five installments of the FANTOMAS serial: FANTOMAS IN THE SHADOW OF THE GUILLOTINE (1913), JUVE VS. FANTOMAS (1913), THE MURDEROUS CORPSE (1913), FANTOMAS VS. FANTOMAS (1914), and THE FALSE MAGISTRATE (1914).
