Written by Yepok. Turner Classic Movies owns a restored copy of this film, which I saw from beginning to end for the first time last night.
Thanks Ted! For an 80 year old film, I was honestly swept away by the strengths of this production. OK, once you get past some of the hammy acting, remembering that it was completely de reguer for the time, you get caught up in it.
It has a very steady editing pace, which carries you along in the story, and so there are few, if any, slow points.
The production values are amazingly high in this film, the recreation of the Opera the grand staircase, the auditorium and the stage the underground the Phantom's lair, the underground river, the chambers and sub-chambers and the exteriors were all created in Hollywood full scale.
Cant leave out the amazing secret that few if any talk about, but did you know that not only are certain scenes single color tinted, but there is an amazing 2 strip Technicolor sequence, the Masked Ball, that takes place on the grand staircase.
Further, there is an stunning sequence that takes place on the roof of the Opera, the Phantom lurking on the parapet, his 'Red Death' costume from the ball billowing behind him in the wind while he stalks the heroine.
If you are expecting buckets of blood and Spiderman-like effects, this isn't the film for you. If you are looking for a fun film with romance, adventure and thrills in it, if you have an appreciation for classic film making, or just want a film you can watch with the kids, this one has a lot to offer.

Initial critical response for the film was mixed. Mordaunt Hall of The New York Times gave the film a positive review as a spectacle picture, but felt that the story and acting may have been slightly improved.
Modern critical response for the film has been more positive, with many considering it the best adaption of Leroux's novel to another medium, or at least until the classic Lloyd Webber stage musical version was first performed.
Roger Ebert awarded the film four out of four stars, writing "It creates beneath the opera one of the most grotesque places in the cinema, and Chaney's performance transforms an absurd character into a haunting one.
With such a strong technical and visual grounding it would have been difficult for Chaney to totally muck things up, and his performance is indeed integral, elevating an already solid horror drama into the realms of legendary cinema.
The site's critical consensus reads, "Decades later, it still retains its ability to scare -- and Lon Chaney's performance remains one of the benchmarks of the horror genre.
After the successful introduction of sound pictures during the —29 movie season, Universal announced that they had secured the rights to a sequel to The Phantom of the Opera from the Gaston Leroux estate.
Entitled The Return of the Phantom , the picture would have sound and be in color. Universal later scrapped the sequel, and instead opted to reissue The Phantom of the Opera with a new synchronized score and effects track, as well as new dialog sequences.
Directors Ernst Laemmle and Frank McCormick reshot a little less than half of the picture with sound during August The footage reused from the original film was scored with music arranged by Joseph Cherniavsky , and sound effects.
Mary Philbin and Norman Kerry reprised their roles for the sound reshoot, and Edward Martindel, George B.
Williams, Phillips Smalley, Ray Holderness, and Edward Davis were added to the cast to replace actors who were unavailable.
The voice overs are uncredited, but were probably done by Phillips Smalley. Because Chaney's talkie debut was eagerly anticipated by filmgoers, advertisements emphasized, "Lon Chaney's portrayal is a silent one!
The sound version of Phantom opened on February 16, , and grossed another million dollars. The success of The Phantom of the Opera inspired Universal to finance the production of a long string of horror films through to the s, starting with the base stories of Dracula , Frankenstein , The Mummy , The Invisible Man and The Wolf Man , and continuing with numerous sequels to all five movies.
Although this particular adaptation is often considered the most faithful, it contains some significant plot differences from the original novel.
In the movie, M. Debienne and M. Poligny transfer ownership of the opera to M. Montcharmin and M. Richard, while in the novel they are simply the old and new managers.
The character of Ledoux is not a mysterious Persian and is no longer a onetime acquaintance of the Phantom.
He is now a French detective of the Secret Police. This character change was not originally scripted; it was made during the title card editing process.
The Phantom has no longer studied in Persia in his past. Rather, he is an escapee from Devil's Island and an expert in " the Black Arts ".
As described in the "Production" section of this article, the filmmakers initially intended to preserve the original ending of the novel, and filmed scenes in which the Phantom dies of a broken heart at his organ after Christine leaves his lair.
Because of the preview audience's poor reaction, the studio decided to change the ending to a more exciting one. Edward Sedgwick was hired to provide a climactic chase scene, with an ending in which the Phantom, after having saved Ledoux and Raoul, kidnaps Christine in Raoul's carriage.
He is hunted down and cornered by an angry mob, who beat him to death and throw him into the Seine. The finest quality print of the film existing was struck from an original camera negative for George Eastman House in the early s by Universal Pictures.
The original version survives only in 16mm "Show-At-Home" prints created by Universal for home movie use in the s. There are several versions of these prints, but none is complete.
All are from the original domestic camera negative. Because of the better quality of the Eastman House print, many home video releases have opted to use it as the basis of their transfers.
This version has singer Mary Fabian in the role of Carlotta. In the reedited version, Virginia Pearson, who played Carlotta in the film, is credited and referred to as "Carlotta's Mother" instead.
Most of the silent footage in the version is actually from a second camera, used to photograph the film for foreign markets and second negatives; careful examination of the two versions shows similar shots are slightly askew in composition in the version.
For the Image Entertainment— Photoplay Productions two-disc DVD set, the soundtrack was reedited in an attempt to fit the Eastman House print as best as possible.
There is no corresponding "man with lantern" sequence on the sound discs. On November 1, , Image Entertainment released a new Blu-ray version of Phantom , produced by Film Preservation Associates, the film preservation company owned by David Shepard.
On January 10, , Shadowland Productions released The Phantom of the Opera: Angel of Music Edition , a two-disc DVD set featuring a newly recorded dialogue track with sound effects and an original musical score.
The film was also reedited, combining elements from the version with the sound release. A 3D anaglyph version is included as an additional special feature.
It is uncertain for what purpose the negative used to strike the Eastman House print was produced, as it includes footage from the sound reissue, and shows few signs of wear or damage.
For unknown reasons, an opening prologue showing a man with a lantern has been added—using a single continuous take—but no corresponding title cards or dialogue survive.
While it was common practice to simultaneously shoot footage with multiple cameras for prints intended for domestic and foreign markets, the film is one of few for which footage of both versions survives others include Buster Keaton 's Steamboat Bill, Jr.
These versions were meant to cash in on the talkie craze; by anything with sound did well at the box office, while silent films were largely ignored by the public.
Since the films included synchronized music and sound effect tracks, they could be advertised as sound pictures, and therefore capitalize on the talkie craze in foreign markets without the expense of reshooting scenes with dialogue in foreign languages.
To make an international version, the studio would simply replace any spoken dialogue in the film with music, and splice in some title cards in the appropriate language.
Singing sequences were left intact, as well as any sound sequences without dialogue. The surviving sound discs of The Phantom of the Opera belong to the domestic release, but do not synchronize with the dialogue portions of the film, which have been abbreviated on the Eastman House print.
Furthermore, for international sound versions, one negative was generally made for all of Europe, sent overseas, and not returned. During the transition to sound in , it was not uncommon for two versions of a picture, one silent and one sound, to play simultaneously particularly for a movie from Universal, which kept a dual-format policy longer than most studios.
One possibility is that the Eastman House print is actually a silent version of the reissued film, made for theaters not yet equipped with sound.
However, according to trade journals of the time, no silent reissue was available. Harrison's Reports , which was always careful to specify whether or not a silent version of a movie was made, specifically stated that "there will be no silent version.
Nevertheless, if the extant print is a silent version, it would explain why Universal still had it and also the lack of wear on the negative from which it was struck.
According to Harrison's Reports , when the film was originally released, it contained 17 minutes of color footage; this footage was retained in the part-talking version.
As with many films of the time, black-and-white footage was tinted various colors to provide mood. These included amber for interiors, blue for night scenes, green for mysterious moods, red for fire, and yellow sunshine for daylight exteriors.
In The Phantom of the Opera was added to the United States National Film Registry , having been deemed "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant".
It is listed in the film reference book Movies You Must See Before You Die. In the United States, the film is in the public domain because Universal did not renew the copyright in From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Christine hat Angst vor dem Phantom und sucht Schutz bei Raoul. Das Phantom folgt beiden auf das Dach der Oper und belauscht sie bei ihrem Entschluss, am folgenden Tag nach England zu fliehen.
Am nächsten Abend wird vor der Aufführung der Oper Faust die Leiche von Joseph Buquet gefunden, einem Mitarbeiter der Oper, der am meisten über das Phantom wusste.
Auch der während der Aufführung anwesende Philip kann nicht verhindern, dass das Phantom Christine entführt. Während der Bruder des getöteten Joseph vor der Oper einen wütenden Mob zusammentrommelt, folgen Raoul, Philip und der Perser dem Phantom.
Philip wird vom Phantom ertränkt, die anderen Männer können sich retten. Inzwischen gelangt der Mob in den Untergrund der Oper. Das Phantom flieht mit Christine, die während der Flucht dem Phantom entwischen kann.
Der wütende Mob erschlägt das Phantom und wirft ihn in die Seine. Damit kam er dem Schauspieler Lon Chaney zuvor, der sich die Rechte eigentlich hatte sichern wollen und stattdessen als Hauptdarsteller in das Projekt einstieg.
