Fantômas (played by Jean Marais and voiced by Raymond Pellegrin) is very angry with Fandor (also played by Jean Marais), a journalist who has written a fictive (and ridiculous) interview of him. After bombing the editorial offices, he kidnaps Fandor, threatens to kill him, but first goes about ruining the journalist's reputation by committing a sensational theft in Fandor's guise. He also kidnaps Fandor's fiancée Hélène (Mylène Demongeot). Hot on the trail is buffoonish police commissioner Juve (Creator/LouisDeFunes). Fantômas then starts committing robberies with a mask imitating Juve's face to get rid of him.

* LatexPerfection: Fantômas' masks when he wants to impersonate someone. This also includes gloves reproducing exactly the fingerprints. In ''Fantômas Unleashed'', Fandor also uses a perfect disguise.
** Averted in the first film: both Jean Marais' and Louis de Funes' facial features are slightly exagerated (larger eyebrows or ears) when Fantomas impersonates them. Played straight in later movies.

* PunchPunchPunchUhOh: As Fandor wakes up in Fantômas' lair, he gives a [[GoodOldFisticuffs good beating]] to some mooks. When he punches Fantômas in the face and the torso, nothing happens.

''Fantômas'' is a French 1960s' film [[AdaptationDecay very loosely based]] on the [[Literature/{{Fantomas}} novels of the same name]]. It turned the title character (a criminal and anarchist in the books) into a [[Film/JamesBond Blofeld]]-esque [[DiabolicalMastermind supervillain]] and spawned two sequels, ''Fantômas Unleashed'' and ''Fantômas Against Scotland Yard''. While the films were not critically praised ([[{{Sequelitis}} the sequels especially]]) they achieved [[CriticProof popular success]] in France, [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff and also enjoyed success in Latin America and the Soviet Union]].
