The Phantom of the Opera (1962)


STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 1

 

VERDICT – 4/5

 

 
PROS –
1) A wronged disfigured music composer finally gets salvation by seeing his written opera performed.
2) Striking set-designs especially the Phantom’s lair.
3) A decent gothic adaptation of the Gaston Leroux‘s Le Fantôme de l’Opéra by Terence Fisher. He managed to complete the story in 84 minutes avoiding any tedious romantic angles.

 

 

CONS –
1) Heather Sears as Christine Charles was definitely not the best option to play the lead.

 

 
QUOTE –
Harry Hunter: You’re an artist. You’re not going to let a little thing like a ghost upset you.
