When Professor Marchand, a famous scientist, mysteriously disappears, the commissioner, Juve, immediately suspects Fantomas.
The parachute sequence at the end of the movie was the first of its kind filmed in a big screen format. Photography was done in free fall by camera operator Jean-Jacques Dubourg. Interestingly enough, the opening sequence of the James Bond movie Moonraker (1979) is in many regards very similar to this scene, which is all the more worth mentioning as the De Funès / Marais Fantômas series is widely regarded as a Bond spoof.
The character (played by Jacques Dynam) of the main lieutenant of Comissaire Juve changes name between "Fantômas" (1964) - where he's called Michel, and "Fantômas se déchaîne" (1965) - where he's going by the first name Bertrand.
The opening credits' animation recreates sequences from the previous film in the series, Fantomas (1964).
