| Fantomas - The Complete Saga |
Retail: $34.95, Our: $27.99
Kino has set a September 21st release date for Fantomas - The Complete Saga. The 3-disc set will contain all five films in Louis Feuillade's silent, crime-drama series.
It will retail for $34.95, but is available at ClassicFlix.com for only $27.99. Details and bonus features below.
Based on the phenomenally popular French pulp novellas, Louis Feuillade’s outrageous, ambitious Fantomas series became the gold standard of espionage serials in pre-WWI Europe, and laid the foundation for such immortal works as Feuillade’s own Les Vampires and Fritz Lang’s Dr. Mabuse films.
Rene Navarre stars as the criminal lord of Paris, the master of disguise, the creeping assassin in black: Fantomas. Over the course of five feature films (which combined to form a 5 1/2-hour epic), Fantomas, along with his accomplices and mistresses, are pursued by the equally resourceful Inspector Juve (Edmund Bréon) and his friend, journalist Jerome Fandor (Georges Melchior). 3-Disc set Includes Collectible O-Card packaging.
