Other Phantoms

The Phantom of the Opera (1925)
Lon Chaney stars in this silent film. Chaney devised his own makeup — including egg membrane in his eyes to give them a cloudy look, according to The makeup was designed to look like a skull. This movie is more like the book than other Hollywood adaptations.

The Phantom of the Opera (1943)
The film stars Claude Rains, best known for his role in The Invisible Man. This film differs from the book in many respects. The movie is about a struggling violinist who abandons his daughter, Christine (Susanna Foster), as a baby and later tries to make her a star. Erique (the Phantom) isn’t born with his deformities, but        suffers acid burns during the movie.

The Phantom of the Paradise (1974)
This version is considered a rock musical. Winslow Leach (William Finley), a rock composer, is the Phantom. He makes a pact with a satanic producer to get his music performed by the girl he is in love with, Phoenix (Jessica Harper). However, he is duped by the producer, framed for drug dealing and sent to prision, where his body is modified in an experimental prison worker program.

The Phantom of the Opera (2004)
The film — based on Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical — stars Gerald Butler  as the Phantom and Emmy Rossum as Christine. A major change from the musical is the famous chandelier scene, which is moved from the end of the first act to the finale of the movie. It also adds more  backstory to the Phantom and includes a new ending.
