Artwork of the Day: You Will Always Have A Full House When You Show Fantomas!


I was doing some research on the history of French cinema for an upcoming series of reviews and I came across this charming little advertisement from 1916. I guess this was sent to theater owners to encourage them to show Fantomas.

Would  I show Fantomas is I got this in the mail?  I sure would!  I’d even hire someone to dress up like Fantomas and deal cards outside the theater.  If only I had been born 100 years earlier…
