He always viewed himself as a singer first, films were something he did to get publicity for his concert tours. But Eddy always loved the grand opera, it could easily been his career path.
Consequently The Phantom of the Opera and the arias he sings here always had a special place in his affections.
We see a lot of the real Nelson here. Another one of his interests was sculpture. Sculpting was a hobby of his and as you can see he was quite good at it.
Might have made a living doing that as well. Susanna Foster who had a lovely soprano voice gave up her career soon after this most acclaimed of her films.
A pity too, it was a real loss to the screen. This Phantom of the Opera has a bit of comedy in it as well. The scenes involving this are nicely staged by director Arthur Lubin, more known for doing Abbott and Costello comedies.
This may have been Edgar Barrier's best film role. He was a more than competent player, his career probably suffering because he was a bit too much like Warren William who was himself a poor man's John Barrymore.
Barrier played equally well as villains or as a good guy as he is here. Another fine role for him even though he only has one scene is in Cyrano de Bergerac where he plays the very sly and all knowing and discerning Cardinal Richelieu.
Of course Phantom of the Opera is really made by the performance of Claude Rains as the mild mannered, inoffensive Eric Claudin, a violinist in the Paris Opera who is crushing out big time on Susanna Foster.
We see him first being told after 20 years he's being given the sack by the company. What they describe sounds an awful lot like Carpel Tunnel Syndrome that he's developed which is affecting his playing the violin.
Bad news for Susanna Foster also because he's been her secret benefactor in paying for voice lessons. There isn't any middle aged man who doesn't identify with Rains.
Tossed out of his job, the rent due, crushing out big time on a young girl, a lot of us have been there. Then when he thinks an unscrupulous music publisher is stealing a concerto he's written, he loses it completely and kills him.
And when acid is thrown in his face disfiguring him, it's a short journey to madness. Rains really makes us feel for Claudin.
In that sense the film is not a horror picture in that we're dealing with monsters or unworldly creatures that Universal so specialized in. The man who becomes the Phantom is all too real, too human, and if we're pushed right, could be any one of us.
Can you do better than opera arias by Nelson Eddy and a classic performance by Claude Rains? I think not. Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends.

Edward Bromberg Amiot Fritz Feld Lecours Frank Puglia Villeneuve Steven Geray Vercheres Barbara Everest Violinist Erique Claudin is dismissed from the Paris Opera House after revealing that he is losing the use of the fingers of his left hand.
Unbeknownst to the conductor, who assumes Claudin is able to support himself, the musician has used all his money to help anonymously fund voice lessons for Christine Dubois , a young soprano with whom he is devoted to.
But famed opera baritone Anatole Garron hopes to win Christine's heart. Christine considers them both good friends, but doesn't openly express if she loves them.
In a desperate attempt to earn money, Claudin submits a piano concerto he has written for publication. After weeks of not hearing a response about his concerto, he becomes worried and returns to the publisher, Maurice Pleyel, to ask about it.
Pleyel rudely tells him to leave. Claudin hears his concerto being played in the office and is convinced that Pleyel is trying to steal it; unbeknownst to him, a visiting Franz Liszt had been playing and endorsing the concerto.
Enraged, Claudin strangles Pleyel. Now wanted for murder, Claudin flees into the sewers of the Opera, and covers his disfigurement with a prop mask stolen from the Opera house.
During a performance of the opera Amore et Gloire , Claudin drugs a glass of wine which prima donna Mme. Biancarolli drinks, knocking her unconscious.
The director puts Christine in her place and she dazzles the audience with her singing. Biancarolli, who suspects that Garron and Christine are responsible for drugging her, orders Raoul to arrest them, but he says he cannot because there is no evidence.
Biancarolli says she will forget the whole affair only if Christine's performance is not mentioned in the papers. The following night, Claudin kills Biancarolli and her maid, and the opera is subsequently closed.
After some time, the opera's owners receive a note demanding that Christine replace Biancarolli. He then brings down the large chandelier on the audience, causing chaos.
As the audience and the crew flee, Claudin takes Christine down underground. He tells Christine that he loves her and that she will now sing all she wants, but only for him.
Raoul, Anatole and the police begin pursuing them underground. Just as Claudin and Christine arrive in his lair they hear Liszt and the orchestra playing Claudin's concerto.
Claudin plays along with it on his piano. Christine watches, realizing the concerto was written around the melody of a lullaby she has known since childhood.
Raoul and Anatole hear Claudin playing and follow the sound. Overjoyed, Claudin urges Christine to sing, which she does. While Claudin is distracted by the music, Christine sneaks up and pulls off his mask, revealing his disfigured face.
At that same moment, Raoul and Anatole break in. Claudin grabs a sword to fight them with. Raoul fires his gun at Claudin, but Anatole knocks Raoul's arm and the shot hits the ceiling, causing a cave in.
Anatole and Raoul escape with Christine, while Claudin is seemingly crushed to death by the falling rocks. Later, Anatole and Raoul demand that Christine choose one of them.
The film ends with Anatole and Raoul going to dinner together. Universal first announced a remake of The Phantom of the Opera in Set to be directed by Anatole Litvak , this version would have been set in contemporary Paris, and would have portrayed the Phantom as a psychologically wounded World War I veteran who was physically unharmed, but imagined that he was disfigured.
Plans for the remake finally surfaced again in November , when Henry Koster became attached to direct. Koster discarded the previous screenplay, and envisioned a new version of the story in which the Phantom was Christine's father.
This led to Durbin refusing the role, not wanting to be compared to Eddy's frequent film Jeanette MacDonald , who Durbin admired. After Koster's firing, Arthur Lubin was brought on to direct.
Under Lubin, Koster's subplot about the Phantom being Christine's father was jettisoned, because it gave the romantic elements of their relationship incestuous overtones; however, the Phantom's obsession with Christine is not completely stated within the film.
Lux Radio Theater presented a radio adaption of the film on September 13, This presentation was produced and hosted by Cecil B.
The score was written by Edward Ward. For the opera sequences, Ward adapted music from Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. He also composed an original theme, Lullaby of the Bells , which was heard in the film as the Phantom's piano concerto.
Contemporary reviews were mixed. The old version had Lon Chaney , who scared you plenty, and the new one has Claude Rains, who somehow doesn't.
In modern times, the film has received more positive reviews. The sites consensus states: "Though it lives beneath the version, Claude Rains plays title character well in this landmark color version of the classic tragedy.
Lon Chaney, Jr. Chaney reportedly also resented Rains for his portrayal. Following the success of Phantom of the Opera , Universal announced that a sequel would be made, titled The Climax.
