Watch The Phantom of the Opera - Alternative Versions.
The current copy of the Universal production of "The Phantom of the Opera"
(1925) is only a shadow of what was once a great film.
Originally, the way the film was shot, it stayed quite close to the book.
Many people have complaints about the film straying from the novel, but
sequences like the Graveyard at Perros and the alternate ending where Erik
dies of Christine's kiss were shot, then scrapped, then reshot, and then
re-scrapped. Eventually, they were just rewritten or disacknowledged
The original cut was shown in Los Angeles on January 7 and 26, 1925. This
was the cut that used the most footage from what was shot starting on
October-December 1924. Due to poor reviews, the January release was
and Rupert Julian was told to reshoot most of the picture. Already having
become a difficult director and egocentric over the fact that he was the
star director ever since he replaced Erich Von Stroheim on THE
MERRY-GO-ROUND (1924), he walked out on the studio.
Edward Sedgewick (later director of Keaton's THE CAMERAMAN), who was
for Universal at the time, was asked by Carl Laemmele to reshoot and
redirect a bulk of the movie. Raymond L. Schrock, who along with Elliot
Clawson, was the screenwriter for the film, re-wrote new scenes to add
the film by the request of Sedgewick. Most of these scenes were added
subplots, with Chester Conklin and Vola Vale as comedic partners to the
heroes and Ward Crane as the Russian, "Count Ruboff" dueling for
affection. This cut premiered in San Fransico on April 26, 1925 and also
failed miserably with reviews.
The final cut had to be made, so Maurice Pivar and Lois Weber re-wrote the
final draft script, which was edited to the final nine reels, which
on September 6, 1925 at the Astor Theater in New York City, and October
1925 in Hollywood. This cut only exists in 16mm Show-At-Home prints made
Universal for home movie use. These prints are not top quality, but
watchable, and even the most complete existing version of this print today
is incomplete from years of splicing. These 16mm prints sometimes make it
to the underground video market and are best to watch for story, but not
If you think about all of the mishandling in between, you realize how much
has been tampered with the film so far. To add insult to injury, most
prints circulating today, including Kino's and the Kevin Brownlow
restoration, are actually from a re-release in 1929. When sound came
around, Universal immediately redubbed Phantom in sound and re-shot about
40% of the film (whatever Lon Chaney was not in, since he was
The only quality 35mm print today is a copy made in 1950 for Eastman House
in Rochester, NY of the silent cut of the sound re-release to distribute
theaters that didn't have sound systems.
So as you can see, it is really almost impossible to truly critique THE
PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (1925). It is a semi-lost film.
