One of the most popular stories of all time, Gaston Leroux’s Phantom of the Opera is the legendary horror tale starring Claude Rains as the masked phantom of the Paris Opera House. Following a tragic accident that leaves him disfigured, crazed composer Erique Claudin transforms into a masked phantom who schemes to make beautiful young soprano Christine Dubois (Susanna Foster) the star of the opera and wreak revenge on those who stole his music. A heroic baritone (Nelson Eddy) tries to win the affections of Christine as he tracks down the disfigured “monster” who has begun murdering those who resist his mad demands. Inspired by the original 1925 silent version, this lavish Technicolor production remains one of the most unforgettable adaptations ever to be filmed.

The DVD was everything I had hoped for and with Nelson Eddy playing the part of Anatole especially so.

Too much opera and not enough Claude. The two male leads are dorks. Claude is cool.

Great fun to see this fairly early version of Phantom

Great fun to see this fairly early version of Phantom. Nelson Eddy and the rest of the cast hold up well after so very many years!

Nelson Eddy has always been a favorite singer of mine. I am 79 years of age and my hearing is still excellent. I have a condition called Hyper accusis and have lost none of the upper frequencies. This makes music as sweet and pure as it always was. I am truly grateful for this.

It doesn’t pack the frightening wallop of Lon Chaney’s 1925 original, but it has pleasant music. Claude Rains as usual is superb and Nelson Eddy was in great voice. The Blu-Ray transfer is beautiful!
