Product Description

Product Description

This spectacular retelling of Gaston Leroux's immortal horror tale stars Claude Rains as the masked phantom of the Paris opera house - a crazed composer who schemes to make a beautiful young soprano (Susanna Foster) the star of the opera company and wreak revenge on those who stole his music. Nelson Eddy, the heroic baritone, tries to win the affections of Foster as he tracks down the disfigured "monster" who has begun murdering those who resist his mad demands. This lavish production remains a masterpiece not only of the genre, but for all time.

This 1943 version of the horror story is more Technicolor musical than scare piece. Claude Rains plays the unfortunate, masked anti-hero, but he doesn't get the room to showcase a promising and sympathetic performance. Susanna Foster and Nelson Eddy, on the other hand, get plenty of screen time to warble. Well worth a visit just for the look of the film, which won an Oscar for cinematography. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I wanted to see this because it had Claude Rains mostly, but also because I wanted to see Nelson Eddy as a person after hearing him in the Disney short "The Whale Who Wanted to Sing at the Met". Besides, I've been a fan of the book by Gaston LeRoux and the musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber for some time, have seen the silent movie version of this story, and wanted to chalk up another credit to my Phantom experience.
Overall, this wasn't a bad little movie - I felt that the fact that it was in colour rather detracted from the sombre, ominous mood this kind of tale needs - it should really be sort of Victorian film-noir, shot in black and white. But then, I felt that they really changed the story so much in this film version that it can only be looked on as a story independent of the book which was its inspiration, and so for that reason the colour is okay. I also felt that Claude Rains' character seemed as though it was going to be a main character at the beginning of the film, but then he seemed to disappear from the film for much of the rest of it. Also, the progression of his adoration complex for Christine was sadly overlooked throughout the film, and we are to understand his descent into bitterness toward mankind from the few scattered minutes of screen time that he has?
Although the rival banter between Raoul and Anatole was very amusing, it seems a little out of place in a story of such tragic dimensions, and draws one's focus completely away from the relationship between Christine and the Phantom of the film's title, which really is the core of the entire book and should be the same or similar in the movie.

This movie is the best phantom movie on the market,and from these very important features;Starting from the very begining of the movie,with it's wonderful and breath holding and colourful opera house.Also,Claude Rains is wonderful and conquering actor,with it's elegant voice and his sudden perfomances during the movie.He is defently the best phantom actor,although Lon chaney is more classic and thrilling,but a little bit borring and muchless intresting as Rains does in this movie.The opera parts were just amazing and exciting,even not to the opera lovers,like me.As a grest phantom fan,I likes this movie the best because it is much more thrilling and spontanian then 1925' LON CHANEY version.It gives,However,Much more exciting end then chaney's classic version.Though the film wasn't so close to the book,it's score and story are great and perfect in every way,and contains a bit of horror movie(indeed-don't disagree!),romance,thriller and exciting melodrama.This version made me never forget it ever.Buy it on VHS or DVD-including also the documantry of "The opera ghost-a phantom unmsked"(search for the DVD version information here in amazon).Phantom fans-What are you waiting for?!

This film was fun and the phantom was a typical man untill he turned to evil and killed a person he thought stole his music. He then fled down to the underground to fool the police! The singing was okay,but not the best part of the film,as this was made for adults,not for children,as some scenes tell. The phantom was a crazed animal for most of the movie,crashing chandeliers on people and tying ropes around their neck. The only time the phantom was like a normal person was when he was with Christine. But the girl wanted to see his face and ripped off the Phantom's mask! The Phantom then gave the the mirror and Cshristine an inhuman glare!! It appeared that the phantom would do something terrible to Christine if her lovers did not come in in the very nick of time and rescue the girl. The film has many startling murder scenes,as in the red haired girl's bedroom where the Phantom appeares from noplace and kills the two women inside there. That is off screen probably because he stabbed them with a knife,and that might have been a gruesome scene! The movie would receive a PG rating for violence,though! But, stick with these old versions and STAY AWAY from the 1989 version of this tale,it is a very bad movie!! In conclusion,this nice film would suit a lot of phantom fans!

Lavish, colorful, extravagant 1943 remake of the 1925 Lon Chaney classic is a visual treat. Released in bright technicolor, and featuring a splendid all-star cast, PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is a wonderful addition to any old Horror Fan's collection. As I already mentioned, the film is sporadically hindered by an overabudance of Opera Sequences, and don't get me wrong. The music is soaring and awe-inspiring, if a little silly at times. But, that's how it's supposed to be. Enter the excellent performance as always of Claude Rains portraying composer Erique Claudin, who lives in poverty and is disabled by arthritis pains, who falls for a young soprano Christine DuBois (Susanna Foster, in a magnificent performance), who would later find herself within the charms of baritone Nelson Eddy and Police Inspector Edgar Barrier. When Claudin goes to publish his music, a tragic misunderstanding occurs, and Claudin is splashed by acid. He prowls the sewers and haunts the Paris Opera House to enhance the singing career of young Foster. Therein is the tale. PHANTOM OF THE OPERA may have its' weaknesses, but more strengths. It has music, great acting, great cast, comedy, moments of suspense, and is absolutely unforgettable. DVD includes a fascinating documentary "Opera Ghost: The Phantom Unmasked" by Scott MacQueen, who also narrates the feature commentary. So buy the DVD, reserve your Box Five seats and enjoy PHANTOM OF THE OPERA - but watch out for the chandelier!
