Had the occasion to see the film "The Phantom Of The Opera" on PIX television. It was good but it was not as good as the stage version I saw in Las Vegas the September before last. The stage version was, in tune with the title of the play, more mysterious and spellbinding. I doubt if I would have felt the same feelings that I had on seeing the stage version, even if I'd seen it on the silver screen.
The stage management was, of course, nothing short of spectacular.
