Wild Rose (Patterson Memorial)

Phantom of the Opera, a Universal Picture ; screenplay by Eric Taylor, Samuel Hoffentstein ; adaptation, John Jacoby ; produced by George Waggner ; directed by Arthur Lubin - set

This spectacular retelling of Gaston Leroux's immortal horror tale stars Claude Rains as the masked phantom of the Paris opera house -- a crazed composer who schemes to make a beautiful young soprano (Susanna Foster) the star of the opera company and wreak revenge on those who stole his music. Nelson Eddy, the heroic baritone, tries to win the affections of Foster as he tracks down the disfigured "monster" who has begun murdering those who resist his mad demands. This lavish production remains a masterpiece not only of the genre, but for all time. - Container
