    The Phantom of the Opera (Universal, 1925). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    If The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923) made Lon Chaney Sr. a superstar, The Phantom of the Opera, released two years later, made him a legend. The story of the grotesquely malformed, yet strangely sympathetic, Erik, who dwells in the catacombs far beneath the Paris Opera House, and will do anything to win the love of the young ingénue Christine Daae (Mary Philbin), was Chaney's masterpiece. Based on the novel by Gaston Leroux, Chaney managed to create a character, by subtleties of body language and facial expression, that was, at once, both revolting and endearing, a complex character that later versions of the story struggled to match. The result was a spectacular hit for Universal, the first entry in their forthcoming horror genre, and a film that firmly established Chaney as the reigning King of Horror. Paper from this film is incredibly difficult to find, including this "Phantom at the Ball" lobby card that's making its Heritage debut. Don't miss your chance to add this gem to your collection. There is a chip in the bottom right corner, corner bends, and two very small tears in the right border. Writing on the verso in pencil does not show through to the front. Very Fine-.
