The Phantom of the Opera

The Phantom of the Opera ★★★½

I believe this is my 2nd silent film and while I'm not a huge fan of silent films I can certainly appreciate the artistry involved to communicate a film without use of the human voice!

Instead the story is very much communicated through the eyes, facial gestures, the hands and through exaggerated body contortions that would put a circus contortionist to shame!

I must say the sets were quite impressive! All in all it was a real treat to see the" man of a thousand faces" Lon Chaney do what he does best.. deliver a class act performance!
