Singing The Praises Of Hammer's Phantom Of The Opera

22 April 2009 9:43 AM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Hi Lee,

Thanks for the nice write-up on Hammer's version of Phantom of the Opera.With all the hype attributed to previous film versions and the stage musical, this version often gets lost in the shuffle and it's far superior to all the others. It knows it's a horror movie. I wish you'd consider having someone on your staff write up a piece on that film. It was planned for Cary Grant to actually play the Herbert Lom role, but that casting arrangement fell apart. I think Grant might have been excellent as the Phantom (he was always desparate to play a character he could disappear into), but I have a very hard time seeing him as Professor Petrie, don't you? In any case, Hammer's Phantom has always been my favorite just for its raft of character actors alone - Michael Ripper and Miles Malleson as cabbies, Patrick Troughton as »
