Black Masks. The Black Masks were created by the Swedish creators Mauritz Stiller and Sigrid Calamnius and appeared in the film De Svarta Maskerna (1912).

The Black Masks are a secret Swedish political society who send the dangerous and sultry Femme Fatale Lydia to steal a document from noble policeman Lieutenant von Mühlen, leading to a love triangle--she becomes his Loving Enemy and then just his lover--and the downfall of everyone.
