When the murderer flees the theatre after the death of Erik at the start, it is obviously a stuntman, rather than Herbert Lom, who jumps over the fence. See more »
Do you remember what we said in my dressing room the very night it happened? I asked you to set a date for our marriage, didn't I? Well... I'm still waiting.
Have you any idea, madame, what I look like? No, you find yourself a husband with a face worth looking at. A handsome young lord, like Charron.
I hate handsome men! I hate them, dear. All my leading men are handsome. Why else would a a man want to look into a mirror night after night? All tailor's dummies and empty hearts. All except you.

Boring and Dull Movie with Terrible Screenplay and Wooden Performances
In Paris, in the beginning of the Twentieth Century, Cesar Charron (Jason Robards) owns a theater at the Rue Morgue where he performs the play "Murders in the Rue Morgue" with his wife Madeleine Charron (Christine Kaufmann), who has dreadful nightmares.
When there are several murders by acid of people connected to Cesar, the prime suspect of Inspector Vidocq (Adolfo Celi) would be Cesar's former partner Rene Marot (Herbert Lom). But Marot murdered Madeleine's mother (Lilli Palmer) many years ago and committed suicide immediately after.
"Murders in the Rue Morgue" is a boring and dull movie with terrible screenplay and wooden performances. There are many clichés; rip-off of scenes and concepts from "The Phantom of the Opera" and "Sherlock Holmes" and Christine Kaufmann is awful in the lead role. There is one terrible dreamlike scene where Madeleine looks to her dress before jumping into the carriage. My vote is four.
Title (Brazil): Not Available
