  • Fantômas: L'Echafaud magique

    1979. France. Directed by Claude Chabrol. Screenplay by Bernard Revon, based on the novel by Pierre Souvestre, Marcel Allain. With Helmut Berger, Gayle Hunnicutt, Jacques Dufilho. Berger is appropriately seductive, swift, intelligent, and secretive as Fantômas, against whom poor workhorse Inspector Juve has no chance. Fantômas kills with class and is pardoned by style and charm. Chabrol could not have imagined a more fitting scenario of make-believe, role-playing, and deception. France, English subtitles. 94 min.
