Product Description:

Lon Chaney, "Man of a Thousand Faces," stars in this silent horror classic. In the film, based on Gaston Leroux's timeless novel, a disfigured, catacomb-dwelling musician (Chaney) terrorizes the Paris Opera House while attempting to turn a pretty chorus girl (Mary Philbin) into a star.

Description by Image Entertainment:

Beneath the splendid riches of the Paris Opera House lie ancient catacombs with a dark and forbidden secret. Once used as torture chambers, these passages now house the Opera Ghost (Lon Chaney), vowing vengeance on the human race and obsessed with young opera ingenue Christine (Mary Philbin). Featuring terrifying make-up and gothic setpieces which remain thrilling today, this spine-tingling, macabre masterpiece can now be viewed in all its grand guignol glory. Utilizing the best 35mm print of the 1929 reissue from the George Eastman House and material from the UCLA Film and Television Archive, this stunning video master features a magnificent orchestral score by Carl Davis (Napoleon) and a stunning restoration of the Technicolor masked ball sequence! 2-Disc DVD Collector's Set! Includes Two Versions! 1925 Original Feature (110 mins.) with a Score by Jon Mirsalis, 1929 Restored Version (98 mins.) with Two Soundtracks by Carl Davis (stereo) and the Original Theatrical Soundtrack (mono).

Plot Synopsis:

The Phantom lives deep in the recesses of the Paris Opera House, well hidden from cruel and prying eyes. But when he falls in love with the beauteous Christine Dane, he becomes aware of his intense loneliness; in desperation, the Phantom kidnaps his love and carries her back to his secret lair. Assuring Christine that he will never harm her, he asks only one thing: that she never remove his mask.

Rating 5.0 A Classic at a Great Price! Movie Lover: from Long Branch, NJ US -- December, 27, 2009

This has to be the most definative edition of the 1925 silent film, a great price for two versions of the film on one DVD.
