The corrupt Lord Ambrose D'Arcy (Michael Gough) steals the life's work of the poor composer Professor L. Petrie. (Herbert Lom). In an attempt to stop the printing of music with D'Arcy's name on it, Petrie breaks into the printing office and accidentally starts a fire, leaving him severely disfigured. Years later, Petrie returns to terrorize a London opera house that is about to perform one of his stolen operas. Written by

During the flashback sequence, Ambrose D'Arcy writes his own name on the title page of one of Professor Petrie's manuscripts, which is called Symphony No. 1. The word 'symphony,' however, is clearly and incorrectly spelled 'symphany.' The spelling is corrected on the printed copies of the music seen later. See more
