The Monsters That Made Us #18 – Phantom of the Opera (1943)
It’s time to dust off the old tuxedo and warm up those vocal chords because “The Invisible Dan” and “Monster Mike” are heading back to the Paris Opera House to discuss Universal’s Technicolor musical remake of Phantom of the Opera! Join them as they dive into Claude Rains’ turn behind the mask, the various scripts and plot points that were left on the cutting room floor, early color film processing, and why this Phantom still has a lot to offer, despite being more of a musical romantic comedy than a horror film.
