The Phantom of the Opera
Classic Horror • 1h 42m
A silent adaptation of Gaston Leroux’s famous novel in which a deformed musician living in the cellars of the Paris Opera House causes murder and mayhem in an attempt to force the management to make the woman he loves a star. It was both the stepping off point for Chaney's run as a superstar at MGM and the prototype for the horror film cycle at Universal in the 1930s.
