A new documentary about the Lon Chaney classic Phantom Of The Opera is in the works, a joint venture of the Witches Dungeon Classic Movie Museum and Bill Diamond Productions, and the team is looking for support from fans to help with the finishing touches. Phantom Of The Opera – Unmasking The Masterpiece will be a 2-dvd set featuring a new, digitally remastered, print of the film, with color tints and two-color Technicolor and a live orchestra performing the original 1925 music. Also included will be the 1907 short The Red Spectre. On disc two you will find an extensive documentary featuring new interviews with Ron Chaney, Carla Laemmle, Tom Savini, Mike Hill, and others. There will also be a video tour of the original opera house set, rare photos, posters, and much more.
