Based on the 1910 novel of the same name, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA is the role Lon Chaney was born to play, with a face made so grotesque and emaciated that audiences who saw the film as children on its original release remembered the film in terror for decades. 

"It creates beneath the opera one of the most grotesque places in the cinema, and Chaney's performance transforms an absurd character into a haunting one." - Roger Ebert
