A police detective matches wits with a master criminal.

I’m not even sure this should be included, as it is very marginal to say the least. My book lists a serial called FANTOMAS, which is supposed to come in five parts. Each part has a separate listing in IMDB, and as far as I can tell, each of these parts is made of smaller episodes of the serial. This is the second of the five movies, and it looks as if it was made up of several episodes of a serial strung together; it starts seemingly in the middle of a story, and ends on a cliffhanger, so I can’t really say much about the arc of the story as a whole. Still, the set pieces where Juve (the detective) tries to outwit Fantomas (the criminal) are amusing indeed; it would be nice to see this in its entirety someday.
