The Phantom Of The Opera (1962)
|Edward De Souza|
"The Greatest Thrill Classic of All Time!"
The hauntings at the London Opera House provoke the resignation of the prima donna. Unknown Christine Charles (Sears) has been chosen as her replacement but is summarily dismissed when she rebuffs the advances of the impresario. That night she is abducted by a deformed dwarf, taken to the cellars to the Opera House where she meets a hideously mutilated man (Lom). He knows the secret of the Phantom of the Opera and recites a chilling story of injustice, depravity and covetousness.
