Belphégor. Belphégor was created by the French author Arthur Bernède (Germaine Aubry, Chantecoq, Judex, Vampiria) and appeared simultaneously in the film Belphégor (1927) and a story serial, “Belphégor” (Le Petit Parisien, Jan. 28-Mar. 28, 1927).
Belphégor is a black-clothed "ghost" who roams the Louvre at night. He is the pawn of a sect of Rosicrucians who are looking for a secret hidden in the museum walls. The detective Chantecoq, helped by his daughter Colette, eventually apprehends Belphégor, who is revealed to be a woman.
