Who was the best Arsene Lupin?


Recommended Posts

Although I knew beforehand, I would have rather seen Warren William as Lupin. He was really more of a Barrymore type anyway. I din't get to finish the second film, but I love the bit where William and Douglas are trying to upstage each other with the magic tricks and the ripping of the phone book.

William would have been a good choice inasmuch as he could do cold and egotistical very well, and those were two properties of Lupin in the novels. Physically he's pretty close (tall, fairly thin). Any Robin Hood qualities are kind of done away with since he keeps most of what he steals. The Lone Wolf series is really a lot more Lupin than the MGM films.
