The Phantom of the Opera (1925) Overview

One of the great early silent classics of the horror genre, The Phantom of the Opera features the legendary Lon Chaney as the mysterious insane phantom who haunts the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera House. The phantom wants his protégé, Christine Daae (Mary Philbin) to sing the role of Marguerite in Gounod's Faust, replacing the diva Mlle. Carlotta.
