''Fantômas'' is a French 1960s' film 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, and had a [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff and also enjoyed success in Latin America and the Soviet Union]].

* {{Leitmotif}}: Both Fantômas and Juve have their own. Fantômas uses the ominous main theme of the movies. Juve has a much more comedic one. Used to great effect during chase scenes by alternating the two.



* PerpSweating: Juves's method for making perps sweat is to eat before one while denying him food. Fandor stays rather unfazed.
