Arsène Lupin is a dated character and, at the same time modern, contemporary. Most of his adventures take place from 1880 to the First World War. The major events of his time, as in the case of Panama or the Russian revolutions of 1905 and Turkey in 1908, are clearly mentioned in his stories. Stories like Arsène Lupin gentleman-cambrioleur or Arsène Lupin contre Herlock Sholmès (which are otherwise not the only ones) presented a solid text, not only in their meaning or in the ideas that they arouse, but in their very form, in the movement of phrases, in the clarity of musical sounds, in the subtly visionary game of images. Regarding the writing of Leblanc, Jacques Derouard does not hesitate to speak of the “theatricality of the text”. At first, the cinema is not interested in Lupin. The first films that show him are foreigners. Only in 1914, the film Arsène Lupin, created by Émile Chautard with Georges Tréville, is released in France. The first sound film, Arsène Lupin, released in the U.S., is produced and distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. Jack Conway is the director, the screenplay by Carey Wilson is an adaptation of the play by Leblanc and Croisset. John Barrymore plays the Duke of Charmerace, aka Lupin, and Lionel Barrymore, the investigator Guerchard. The first color film, Les Aventures d'Arsène Lupin, is a French-Italian co-production, made in 1956, by Jacques Becker, who also wrote the screenplay with Albert Simonin. The famous cabaret singer and comedian, Robert Lamoureux, offers a fascinating portrait of the famous gentleman cambrioleur. In 1959, Robert Lamoureux repeats his performance, still playing the role of Arsène Lupin in a new French-Italian co-production, Signé Arsène Lupin. Yves Robert is the creator and Jean-Paul Rappeneau and François Chavanne are the writers. Édouard Molinaro, filmmaker known throughout the world for his famous film La Cage aux folles, wanted to measure himself with the character of Lupin in Arsène Lupin contre Arsène Lupin. One of the best pastiche of Lupin in the cinema. After many years of absence, on October 13, 2004, the legendary gentleman-cambrioleur is back on screens in a major production of Jean-Paul Salomé, starring Romain Duris (as Lupin), Kristin Scott Thomas (as the Cagliostro) and Eva Green (as Clarisse). A French attempt made in a Hollywoodian way trying to impress the audience with spectacular scenes. Radio and television adaptations of the works of Leblanc are numerous. The universe of Lupin fascinates young people. His process media is certainly not stopping. Comics of all kinds are published and even cartoons such as the famous Lupin III.
