Plot Outline:

A pit violinist, along with a fellow baritone and a police inspector - are all smitten with soprano Christine Dubois. While secretly helping her career, Claudin is finding it tougher to keep his own position - ending in disfigurement and murder. Shortly after the Paris Opera house is plagued by a mysterious Phantom who commits crimes before disappearing into the catacombs. But the two rivals have a plan to ferret him out once and for all. -- Chris Kavan

The focus is different, but the story is the same.

1943's Phantom Of The Opera is usually quite criticized for straying too much from the original story, and for having too much focus on the opera. The heart of the story remains true to the classic story, and the first filming: A phantom stalks the Paris Opera House, and is attempting to get an opera starlet into the spotlight. The opera scenes are well staged, well sung and well acted. The rest of the film is also well acted, and Claude Rains turns in an excellent performance as the man who becomes the phantom. Susanna Foster shines when she is on the opera's stage, and sparkles when she is offstage. Nelson Eddy and Edgar Barrier both play their roles very well. The sets and props are extravagant, and the era in which the film is set is shown accurately. Over all I really enjoyed the way...
