More Movie Taglines:
  • The greatest horror film of modern cinema!
  • A masterpiece of horror that shocked cinema for decades!
Movie Quote(s):
  • Erik: Feast your eyes! Glut your soul on my accursed ugliness!
  • Christine: You... You are the Phantom! Erik: If I am the Phantom, it is because man's hatred has made me so... If I shall be saved, it will be because your love redeems me.
  • Erik: She is singing to bring down the chandelier!
  • Simon Buquet: His nose. There is no nose!
  • Erik: Christine, tonight I placed the world at your feet!
Movie Trivia:
  • Edward Sedgwick directed a few scenes after director Rupert Julian walked off the set after heated arguments with cast and crew.
  • Ben Carré was called in to design the sets, and although he had worked at the Paris Opera House, he had already been living in California for some time doing sets.
  • Lon Chaney devised his own make-up.
  • The only part of the set sill standing is the Opera House, though the only parts left completely untouched are the boxes and stage sides.
  • Several sequences were shot in various color processes for the top general release prints. Technicolor was used for scenes from FAUST and the Bal Masque scene, Prizmacolor sequences were shot for the "Soldier's Night" introduction, and Handschiegel (a process that uses stamps to hand-color prints) for the Phantom's notes and red cape on the rooftop. Only the Technicolor Bal Masque sequence is known to survive (an IB print from the 1929 re-release).
