Synopsis

This fourth filming of the horror classic (fifth, if one counts the rock spoof, "Phantom of the Paradise") gives Maximilian Schell the role of the disfigured musician whose obsession is diabolical revenge for the suicide of his young opera singer wife. Jane Seymour is not only his wife but also an up-and-coming singer whose stardom he orchestrates because of her resemblance to his true love. Michael York is the opera producer who has taken a romantic interest in the lookalike (comparable to the Nelson Eddy role in the 1943 version). Lon Chaney had played The Phantom in the 1925 movie, Claude Rains in 1943, and Herbert Lom in 1962. Gaston Leroux was not credited as the author of this timeless novel.
