Episode Info

Episode Info:

Part two of the pairing of silent film-era horror cinema focuses on 1925's "Phantom of the Opera" starring none other than Lon Chaney as "The Phantom!" Based on the Gaston Leroux novel, and directed by a quartet (although three are uncredited), this film also stars Mary Philbin as "Christine Daae," Norman Kerry as "The Vicomte Raoul de Chagny," Arthur Edmund Carewe as "Ledoux," Mary Fabian as "Corlotta," and Virginia Pearson as "Carlotta's Mother," this film is a testament to the power of lighting and make-up! To this day, experts still don't know for certain how Chaney managed the skeletal look for his Phantom, although many have guesses. Again, if you can find the 2011 "Film Preservation Associates, Inc." version, you'll get to see the marvelous tinting and probably one of the best restored versions of the film available! Plus, the trio turn to another director for their next pairing, but you have to listen to find out which one!
