The Phantom of the Opera

Overview

This adaptation of Gaston Leroux's indefatigable "grand guignol" piece The Phantom of the Opera stars British actor Charles Dance as Erik the Phantom.

The film boasts a stronger supporting cast than was usual for a TV movie, including Burt Lancaster as the masked phantom's father, Ian Richardson and Jean-Pierre Cassel. The 1990 Phantom ...

    For 15 years this has been my favorite...

    I grew up with this particular version, and have always loved it. I even considered getting another copy, because my current one's case is not looking so hot. But this version is actually quite heartbreaking. Charles Dance did a superb job, as did Teri Polo. Buy this, and you won't regret it!

    Lovely

    I enjoyed this film quite a bit. It gives the phantom a sense of humor and shows how he feels about having to kill. It goes more into the characters showing pasts of a couple of the them. Towards the end you see how being locked down there really had eaten at the phantoms' mind. Charles Dance plays it to break your heart and does. This film shows a softer phantom not a murderous scary one.But while I enjoyed this film and do own it, the muscial version recently out in movie theaters has stolen my heart for good.

    one of my favorite movies

    I definitly love this version of 'Phantom,' it's one of my favorites. I've been a Phantom phan for nine years, and this film certainly tells the story well. I love the way Charles Dance portrays Erik really gently, kind, romantic, and really endearing. Teri Polo is excellent as Christine. I can't say enough about this movie. It's romance and a good story at it's finest. I'd recommend it to most anyone. It's really the most moving portrayl of 'Phantom ,' I've seen.

    An Exquisite Rendition...

    I purchased this film on here after it had been highly recommended by two other phriends of mine, and I was not disappointed. Erik was wonderfully portrayed by Charles Dance, and makes for the kindest Erik I have seen. Though I know this version of Erik is often considered 'weak', I find it quite endearing. While his temper is quick to flare, you can also see the innocence of a child; both which Dance brought our beautifully. Erik's father, cast as Burt Lanchester, gives a full preformance in the heart-wrenching descion between the well-being of his son, and the safety of others. I enjoyed this new factor to Phantom the most, of seeing someone who is actually a friend of Erik's, much like Nadir in Susan Kay's book: Phantom. Teri Polo certainly makes for an intresting Christine, who seems more willing to accept Erik's face after the first impression, which was nice to see. With an impressive cast, the real set, and an ending you'll never forget, I also highly recommended this to any phan, or even a non-phan.

    Excellent, romantic portrayal...

    Good movie, I remember enjoying it greatly when I watched it on NBC during the original telecast. I am so happy to have found it again! This castes Charles Dance, a talented singer, along with Teri Polo (Meet my Parent - she was the fiancee of Ben Stiller). Together the sparks fly! It is a terribly romantic telling of the movie, which as you know, can range from gruesome and suspenful to mysterious and romantic...
