Directed by Narciso Ibáñez Menta and Marta Reguera

Neat little tidbit: The interior shots of the Palais Garnier were shot in Theater Colón of Buenos Aires. It was also one of the greatest successes of 1960 in Argentina. It also might be the first televised Phantom program.

This is about a 20 minute episode. It was combined with two other episodes. It's not out on DVD yet (though I think it was put on VHS at one point, although those are long out of print. The Phantom leads beautiful soprano down into his lair. She takes off his mask then he turns around to choke her...then makes a shocking discovery of his own, something to make a Phantom shudder. I like this episode It's quite cute. I hope the makers of Night Gallery do decide to put the rest of the seasons out on DVD so this episode can be seen again. Season 1 is already out, and it is said if it did well, they'd put the rest of them out.

The Elephant Man, 1982
Directed by Jack Hofsiss
Running time: 90 min
This was an amazing adaptation. I remember seeing it on ABC's ABC Theatre of the Month in 1982-1983 as a kid. I found it an interesting idea not to have Philip Anglim (John Merrick) in full body makeup, instead he distorted his body to give the impression that he was deformed.

Wishbone Pantin' at the Opera, Ep. 37, Aired 1995
Wishbone tells the story of the Phantom of the Opera. He plays Raoul. This series aired on PBS, was roughly 30 minutes long, and was about the adventures of a little Jack Russell Terrier named Wishbone who had a very wild imagination. The show's purpose was to encourage children to read. The premis of the show usually had Wishbone as the hero in some classic novel, play or short story. This particular episode doesn't seem to be available on VHS (well I can't find it) but it seems that this series is going to DVD now.
