With his mentor Inspector Juve missing, journalist Jérôme Fandor (Georges Melchior) assumes the difficult task of pursuing the infamous Fantômas (René Navarre), a frightfully brilliant villain who excels in deception, larceny and murder. In this third film of the classic silent film series, Fantômas uses a dead artist's fingerprints to keep the pesky police constantly guessing.

One of the most exciting of the Fantomas films. I am consistently amazed at how Louis Feuillade keeps each one fresh and uniquely interesting. Great use of disguises and identities and another great ending.
Well, if you don't read the inconveniently spoiler-bearing story synopsis provided by Fandor before watching this episode, the story seems as if it would be genuinely enticing. The soundtrack is so awesome, also. The feeling of suspense achieved here is incredible considering how little ground work had been done in the field of crime thrillers. Or thrillers at all, as far as I know.
