One of cinema’s first superheroes, the mysterious Judex (René Cresté) 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 Andréyor). This framework is the basis of a series of extraordinary and engaging incidents involving Judex’s brother (Edouard Mathé), the evil Diana Monti (Musidora) and her accomplices, the detective Cocantin (Marcel Lévesque) and the charming Licorice Kid (Bout-de-Zan), all of them regular players in Feuillade’s grand tapestries.

Flicker Alley in association with Turner Entertainment Networks is proud to present Judex, an important part of cinema history available on a 2-disc deluxe edition DVD set. 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. Enjoy this brand new digital edition of what the Village Voice declared as “one of the most lithe, charming, inventive and supplely paced serials ever made."
