International Film Series plans double feature

By
From page A11 | December 20, 2012 |

A double feature of “The Phantom of the Opera” will be screened Friday as part the International Film Series. The total viewing time is just under four hours.

The series is co-sponsored by the United Nations Association of Davis and International House. Doors at I-House, 10 College Park, open at 6:30 p.m. and the film begins promptly at 7 p.m.

There is no charge, but donations are accepted with gratitude to help cover the cost of DVD rental, facilities use and refreshments.

This is an opportunity to compare the earliest film with the latest and observe the changes in filmmaking during a period of 79 years.

The first feature is the restored 1925 American silent film version (with easy-to-read dialogue), directed by Rupert Julian and starring Lon Chaney as The Phantom who haunts the Paris Opera House. The Phantom causes all sorts of chaos to force the management to give the role of Marguerite in Faust to the woman he loves and whom he has taught, Christine Daaé (Mary Philbin).

The second film, which starts at approximately 8:40 p.m., is the 2004 adaptation of the 1986 Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, directed by Joel Schumacher, co-written and produced by Lloyd Webber. The opening scene is from a 1919 auction of old artifacts from the opera house. When the famous chandelier goes on the auction block, color and music emerge and take us back to 1870.

Gerald Butler stars in the title role with Emmy Rossum as Christine Daaé, Patrick Wilson as Raoul and Minnie Diver as Carlotta, the rival diva.
