All the times we see the Phantom prior to being unmasked, his forehead above the mask is clean. But for a split second before he rips the mask off, a small scar is visible on the right side of his forehead. See more »
This is the Phantom that scared the heck out of me when I was a kid, and comes in second after the classic Lon Chaney version. It is the only color version that really works, here given that garish, over-the-top gothic treatment that worked so well for Hammer Studios. It doesn't have the ponderous, plodding feel of the book or other versions, and follows through with a scary shot-in-the-arm or two. More complete video stores should have this on the shelf.
