Photos of New Life-Size Bust of Lon Chaney Sr. as The Phantom of the Opera

  • DailyDead
Since he first haunted the Palais Garnier opera house, The Phantom has captivated and chilled readers of Gaston Leroux's classic novel and viewers of its many film adaptations. The most memorable translation from page to screen is widely considered to be the first one, thanks in large part to Lon Chaney Sr.'s stunning, skeletal transformation into The Phantom. Nearly a century later, Black Heart Enterprises, LLC is celebrating the actor's iconic appearance in The Phantom of the Opera with a new life-size bust coming next year from Sideshow Collectibles.

Meticulously sculpted by Jeff Yagher, the new life-size bust of Lon Chaney Sr. is a detailed depiction of the actor as he appeared in the classic 1925 movie The Phantom of the Opera. Standing approximately 17 inches tall, the life-size bust gorgeously displays Chaney Sr.'s haunted expression under ghoulish makeup that forever cemented the tragic character in horror film history.

Wonder- Review

While another bruising company of costumed heroes makes the walls vibrate in stereo at many theatres (actually in most of the screens at your local multiplex), a quieter, more gentle film is opening to give families a nice alternative. And it stars real flesh and blood actors rather than computer-generated characters. It’s based on the rare young adult novel that’s not set in a dystopian future. The beloved five year-old book offers another take on a tale as old as time, with themes that echo the live Beauty And The Beast from earlier in the year. Add a dash of The Elephant Man, a pinch of The Phantom Of The Opera, a sprinkle of Mask, toss it in a middle school (maybe cooked in a classic “Easy Bake Oven”) and film goers should savor this sweet, nourishing cinema dish all about a most unusual boy, who despite his

Beatboxed Cover of “The Phantom of the Opera” is Kind of Awesome

I wonder if Gaston Leroux, you know, the guy that wrote the story, would be interested to know what’s being done with this particular part of his tale? He might wonder what in the world a beatbox version is to start with, and then why it looks like the young on the right is spitting during the rendition of the song. Of course different time different sensibilities and all that, but this is seriously something else. I didn’t say it was good, but I didn’t say it was bad. It was something else. Whether you sing professionally or in a

Bill Condon Offers Up New Details On Bride Of Frankenstein Remake

Things aren’t looking too good for Universal’s Dark Universe.

As is standard for Hollywood’s interwoven franchises, the studio ran the risk of putting the cart before the horse by announcing big-budget fantasy flicks based on cinema’s most iconic creatures – think The Invisible Man and Frankenstein’s Monster – long before The Mummy became the first domino to fall. That was back in June, and after swallowing a financial hit in excess of $95 million, it’s clear that Universal’s classic monsters universe has endured a rocky start.

Where things will go from here remains to be seen, but the studio isn’t letting the beating that their franchise starter took over the summer get them down. Far from it, in fact. As mentioned above, plans have already been mapped out for a rather large shared universe, one that will, through time, carve out room for The Phantom of the Opera,
