This is a more current movie musical version of a stage production of Andrew Lloyd Webber's original. I vaguely remember a 1943 movie starring Claude Raines, Susanna Foster, and the famous Nelson Eddy.
I was fortunate enought to see both the stage and the later film verson of "Phantom". Both are excellent. The think I appreciated most was that the movie did not even attempt to follow the same story line as the stage, except for the music. I saw the 1940's version on television awhile back. As I recall Nelson Eddy and Susannah York sang operatic parts, but the play was primarily drama without singing. Claude Rains played the phantom, and the story involved more of his becomming disfigured that any of the other versions I've seen.
