REVIEWS AND GENERAL OPINIONS ABOUT BEAUTY AND THE BEAST-GENRE MEDIA!
Gaston Leroux did see the 1925 film, and by accounts, he liked it. I’m not sure what he thought of the ending, though. :P
I think that Leroux would enjoy the West End/Broadway production of Phantom, if nothing else, the fact that a work that he created had such a lasting impact and was beloved by so many people.
Incidentally, Mary Philbin, the original Christine actress in the 1925 silent film, saw ALW’s Phantom of the Opera, and reportedly loved it.
I, for one, would love to see Leroux’ reaction to Rat Phantom.
I am unabashedly stealing that image for all of my wtf reactions! :D :D
Let me tell ya, I wish I had this picture when I wrote my reviews for the rat phantom movie and Unmasqued.
i love how it’s not even a question or concern whether rumple is alive
like it’s just a universal fucking fact that he’s not dead
Oh yes, it totally happened. A stunt man climbed down from the roof and through the chandelier, and appeared at the above mentioned moment. It looked like this (and a huge thanks to countessdechagny for documenting it with such a stunning photo!):
The moment itself didn’t wow me all that much. But I can see how they wanted to add something special to the chandelier in Il Muto since the actual drop was moved to after PONR (movie style).
Short little petite Christine standing at 5’2” compared to Erik who is like a fucking giant and Raoul who is almost a whole foot taller than her and yet anytime she gets mad it causes either one of them to be terrified
