1943 PHANTOM Lux Radio Broadcat...5 Stars!!!!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is the Lux Radio Broadcast of 1943. It is Based o the 1943 film PHANTOM OF THE OPERA starring Claude Rains. Sadly, this CD does not feature Claude Rains...but Basil Rathbone as the Phantom. Utherwise, the rest of the cast is the same. Nelson Eddy playes the Romantic Baritone Anatole Carron. Susannah Foster plays the soprano Christine Dubois (originally Christine Daae' in the novel). The Radio show tells the story ofa would-be composer who lost his job with the opera orchestra. Having been badly burned by Acid, he retreats from society and becomes the PHANTOM. He deticates his life to caching the young soprano, Christine Dubois, who receives atrention from the opera star Anatloe Carron and the Cheif of Police, Raoul de Chaney. This CD is worth every penny charged for it. Any PHANTOM fan is guaranteed to love this recording!"
Radio Version of The Phantom of the Opera
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Much cutting was done to fit this marvelous movie into a 40 minute radio show. It was well done! Let your imagination play along with the narrative. The music is wonderful with Foster at her very best which is considerable.Eddy narrates the story well.As a film this really was a musical,not horror story.The radio presents it more as a scarey story.Sit back ,close your eyes and enjoy!Then get the film! You should also get "The Climax" if you enjoy The Phantom".Boris Karlof and Susanna Foster are great in this frightening,musical film.In these two films Foster can lay claim to the finest singing voice of all the movie canaries.Durbin,Powell and Grayson et al. Only the ego of studio owners kept her from being the biggest musical star of the 40s.Of course this is one man's opinion."

"I thought I was going to like this CD a lot more than I did. I like this CD but Basil Rathbone Made it okay. I wish Claude Rains was in this CD instead of Basil Rathbone. Exept for Claude Rains dosn't do Raidio Shows."
