Phantom of the Opera - Phantomesque Movies

Phantomesque Movies

What I hope to achieve with these pages is to have a complete list of all Phantomesque movies, from every country, in every language I can find, including whether on VHS, and DVD. I also would like to have screencaps from each version, and the cover art from the different versions, and where to buy

Place de l’Opera, 1st view, 1896, also Place de l'Opera 2nd view, 1896
Directed by Georges Méliès
Running time: ?
Language: French
No cast. This is very interesting. The films are lost to time, but Georges Méliès filmed Place de l'Opera two different views. It would be very interesting to acutally see these. Too bad they are supposedly gone

The Phantom Violin, aka The Phantom of the Violin, 1914
Directed by Francis Ford
Running time: 40 minutes
Language: Silent

  • Grace Cunard - Ellis' wife
  • Francis Ford - Ellis
  • Harry Schumm
  • Duke Worne

Seems to be about a husband, Ellis, (Francis Ford) who's wife leaves him (Grace Cunard) for another man. Ellis becomes insane in hides in a crypt with a secret door where he murders his wife's new lover and then he leaps to his death with his wife in tow. Not sure what a violin has to do with all of this...

Language: Silent/French

  • Albert Préjean - The reporter
  • Sandra Milovanoff - Yvonne Vincent
  • Paul Ollivier - Dr. Window

  • Georges Vaultier - Julien Boissel
  • Maurice Schutz

This is just...umm weird. A statesman has a daughter who is in love with one guy, but another man blackmails her father so he gives his daughter to this other guy in marriage. The poor lover is depressed, goes to the Moulin Rouge to drown his sorrows, meets a very strange doctor who is able to free the young lover's soul from his body. The young lover has fun playing practical jokes around Paris, but at some point begins to miss his body (and his girlfriend). He discovers the doctor has been arrested so he needs to go save the doctor so he can get back into his body. Seems to be a comedy.

Beauty and the Beast, 1934
Directed by Isadore Freleng (aka Fritz Freleng)
Running time: 8 min
Language: English
This has been on some lists, and although it's not really anything to do with Phantom, I thought it a good idea to add it to clear up what this was really about. This is a cartoon by Warner Brothers (the Looney Toons series). This is almost a Nutcracker type story, A young girl eats too many snacks, falls asleep and ends up in Toyland. She befriends a toy soldier. They sit down to read "Beauty and the Beast" (well really sing a song) when a monstrous beast comes out and tries to take the girl captive. It becomes a brawl between girl and beast. At some point she realizes it's just a bad dream, and jumps back into bed and covers herself with the sheets.No cast is listed, but there is some contention that the young girl in the short is actually Mary Jane.

This sounds interesting. Three friends get lost during a storm and are guided to an eery monastary by a mysterious stranger. They are told a story about a monk who seduces his friend's wife, and then the monk died. He couldn't find any peace and he returns to his cell. One of the characters witnesses the monk's cursed mummified corpse return to the cell. Alfonse (who witnesses the mummy), passes out. When he awakes, the three friends discover the monastary is only a ruin and tourists visit the corpse of the monk.

Phantom of the Cinema, 1972
Directed by J.X. Williams
Running time: ?
Language: English
Unknown cast.
This is a weird one. There is almost no information on this movie. There is a poster or a cover of a video from Demark that has the name The Phantom of the Cinema written across it, but it is none other than the movie Popcorn. This one is completely different. The director, J.X. Williams seems to be a very private individual, doesn't discuss his movies that often, and they are not even available on video. The prints that are left go for thousands of dollars. This particular film may not have anything to do with Phantom, but I'm intrigued by the director. He's almost Phantom-like himself. You can read more about him here. There is only one image I found but I don't know if it was a poster for the movie, or just some art someone did for it. It can be found at the J.X Williams Archive here. The image is the 3rd one over from the left of the browser screen. It seems like his films may be making a comeback, so there's hope that this may be available on video or DVD at some point.

This has a very Phantom-y feel to it. You have Oswald Cobblepot, the Penguin, who was unloved by his parents. He was raised by penguins. Goes on to live and work in a freak show but then, disappears back into the sewers. You have Batman who is the lonely masked dark knight, then Selina Kyle/Catwoman is the object of the Penguin and Batman's desires, although she's wresling with some inner demons as well. There is a very lovely Masquerade ball which includes a very quick shot of Red Death walking down the stairs right in front of Michelle Pfeiffer.

The Man in the Iron Mask, 1998

  • Gabriel Byrne - Capt. D'Artagnan
  • Anne Parillaud - Queen Mother Anne
  • Judith Godrèche - Christine Bellefort
  • Edward Atterton - Lt. Andre
  • Peter Sarsgaard - Raoul
You may be wondering what is this movie doing in 'Phantomesque! There's no disfigured genius, but there is a man in a mask, (Phillippe) and there are two characters with the names of Christine and Raoul. This is based on the Dumas book of the same name. It takes many liberties with the plot, but it's basically the same story, Louis XIV has a twin brother (Phillippe, also a Phantom name) who is kept in an iron mask all the time. The Three Musketeers (Athos, Porthos, D'Artagnan and Aramis--okay Four Musketeers) work to free Phillippe from the mask and put him on the throne instead of Louis. Lots of fun and intrigue. Don't know why I like this version, but I do
