Palaces Of Montezuma

Fantomas- A l'ombre de la guillotine (1913)

Psychedelic invocations
Of Mata Hari at the station
I give to you
A Java princess of Hindu Birth
A woman of flesh a child of earth
I give to you
The hanging gardens of Babylon
Miles Davis the black unicorn
I give to you
The Palaces of Montezuma
And the Gardens of Akbar's tomb
I give to you
The spider Goddess and the Needle Boy
The slave-dwarves they employ
I give to you
A custard-coloured super-dream
Of Ali McGraw and Steve McQueen
I give to you

C'mon baby, let's get out of the cold
And give me, give me, give me your precious love for me to hold

A tearjerker for me. By the time he starts singing it I'm almost in tears already! I can believe how brilliant this song is!

This is a very nice photo, but this scene does not appear in any of the Fantômas episodes. If you find out from which movie it is taken, please let me know :)
