The Phantom of the Opera Reviews:

Every "Phantom of the Opera" deviates somewhat from the Leroux novel - with the original silent movie with Lon Chaney perhaps being the exception. In the '40s Nelson Eddy version, the police chief and an operatic baritone are Christine's suitors instead of Raoul (though the baritone is called Raoul) and it's hinted that the Phantom is her father. His acid in the face was the effect of a misunderstanding at the melody publisher's.In this particular "Phantom," from Hammer Studios, the Phantom (Herbert Lom) has an Igor-type assistant, and here Christine's suitor is the manager of the opera house (Edward de Souza). There is also a true villain, a plagiarist in the form of King d'Arcy (Michael Gough). Most notably, it has a production of "Joan of Arc" with melody written by Edwin T. Astley that is now very cute and beautifully sung.Everyone does a terrific job in this - Gough is hateful as the supposed composer of the opera; de Souza is a hunk and a nice romantic interest for Christine; and Heather Sears as Christine is very sweet and, like all Christines, lacking the diva quality her rival has. In this film, the rival singer is a very minor role. The dubbing of the voices is wonderful.Herbert Lom, normally a comic hero in the "Pink Panther" series, is a nice phantom, performed at a time when the Phantom didn't have to be better-looking than the ingénue. The Phantom is not a large role in this film, but an effective and highly sympathetic one. He seems a tiny less nuts than some of them, though he's clearly not fully there.The final stage of this movie is very exciting, and the final picture very strong and sad. This is a really perfect ver with not much emphasis on the horror aspects of the Chaney film. It has nice production values and is very well directed.


The novel The Phantom of the Opera has been filmed at least ten times plus now. This entry by Hammer Studios is one of the better ones, bringing a liberal change in storytelling as well as some very atmospheric settings and camera work. Directed by Terence Fisher, this film, like Fisher's The Gorgon, is highly poetic. The phantom is a former melody professor who has been pushed into his life of seclusion and physical deformity. He is a figure of sympathetic pity rather than horror. It is this mission of view which makes this movie very interesting as the phantom is not the creature but rather just a boy who has been mistreated trying to cope and resurrect his life. Yep, he still lives in the sewers of Paris. The Hammer sets are unbelievable all around, particularly the opera house and the winding underground sewers. Hammer also puts their stamp of luxuriant looking cinematography on. Herbert Lom plays the boy behind the mask. Lom does a great job in the movie as do all the leads. Heather Sears is a striking heroine, and Edward Da Souza makes an affable leading man. The true star, apart from Fisher's direction, is Michael Gough. Boy, can this boy enjoy a mean individual. Gough's screen time is magic as he malevolently belittles everyone around him, steals things that are not his, and lewdly leers at anything in a skirt! The movie also boasts some fine staged opera numbers and a pretty soundtrack. Many scenes present Fisher's competence and ability to make lush moods whilst being able to deliever nice storytelling.A fine Phantom edition.


This is the Phantom that afraid the heck out of me when I was a kid, and comes in second after the classic Lon Chaney version. It is the only color ver that really works, here given that garish, over-the-top gothic treatment that worked so well for Hammer Studios. It doesn't have the ponderous, plodding feel of the ebook or another versions, and follows through with a scary shot-in-the-arm or two. More finished video shops could have this on the shelf.
