Directed By Louis Feuillade. Starring: René Cresté, Musidora, René Poyen, Édouard Mathé. Produced By Jeffery Masino. Written By Arthur Bernède & Louis Feuillade. This remarkably inventive and dreamlike French serial by the great Louis Feuillade represents a highlight in French filmmaking and has inspired generations of filmmakers since its first release in 1917. One of cinema's first "superheroes," the mysterious Judex (Rene Creste) is torn between an oath of justice against the wealthy banker Favraux (Louis Leubas), who had earlier wronged his family, and his secret love of Favraux's daughter, Jacqueline (Yvette Andreyor). This framework is the basis of a series of extraordinary and engaging incidents involving Judex's brother (Edouard Mathe), the evil Diana Monti (Musidora) and her accomplices, the detective Cocantin (Marcel Levesque), and the charming Licorice Kid (Bout-de-Zan), all of them regular players in Feuillade's grand tapestries.
