First film adaptation, directed by Rupert Julian, of Gaston Leroux’s novel. The film features Lon Chaney in the title role as the deformed Phantom who haunts the Paris Opera House, causing murder and mayhem in an attempt to force the management to make the woman he loves a star. It is most famous for Lon Chaney’s intentionally horrific, self-applied make-up, which was kept a studio secret until the film’s premiere.
A wonderful book of jokes, cartoons and epigrams to make you smile and laugh. From the collection of John Towsen Phd.
