Fantomas Contre Scotland Yard

After I decided to do a 1967 movie marathon and started looking at what films had come out that year, I was super excited when I saw that this was a 1967 release. I loved watching Louis de Funes movies when I was a kid, and this was my favorite one, and I watched it countless times (almost as much as I’ve watched some Bond films). Strangely enough, it’s part of a trilogy of Fantomas movies, and I never watched the other ones, I was just obsessed with this one. Watching it again now — probably for the first time in 2-3 decades — I was happy to find it just as fun and funny. It’s not for everyone, but for me it was pure nostalgic bliss.
