Atmosphere masterfully nailed.

What can I say? Lon Chaney as the Phantom really sets the tone of this early version.

The music in this version is a nice antidote to all the orchestral scores that somehow miss the gothic elements in the film.
5*****!

This movie is, in my opinion, far superior to the contemporary version. Christine is a lively character, Raul is genuinely likeable, and the Phantom's visage is just as genuinely unnerving.
