Kino’s Studio Canal deal continues with more rare gems: Charlie Largent reviews a trio of fantastic pulp crime thrillers from the 1960s, that updates Louis Feuillade’s silent classic to the super-spy 1960s.

The pictures are Fantomas, Fantomas Unleashed and Fantomas vs. Scotland Yard; also starring Luis de Funès as Inspector Juve, with Mylène Demongeot and Robert Dalban. On Blu-ray from KL Studio Classics.
