1960s movies:

  • Acting for Two: Jean Marais played both Fandor and Fantômas. In Fantômas Unleashed he's Acting for Three since he's also Pr. Lefèvre (whom both Fantômas and Fandor disguise as).
  • California Doubling: The "Scottish" castle in Fantômas Against Scotland Yard? It's the castle of Roquetaillade, in Mazères, near Bordeaux, in France.
  • Production Posse: Three of many other films directed directed by André Hunebelle starring Jean Marais, including Le Bossu and Le Capitan.

  • What Could Have Been: A fourth movie tentatively titled Fantômas in Moscow was talked about. It never got off the ground.

In general:

  • Canon Welding: Fantômas is the canonical grandfather of the supervillain Phantom Limb on The Venture Bros., thanks to being a public domain character. (It is unknown if Helene or Fandor is his parent.)
