The Film Score Freak recognizes The Phantom of The Opera starring Lon Chaney and Jo Gabriel’s ‘Bulldozer’

The Phantom of The Opera 1925 starring Lon Chaney and Mary Philbin

A mad, disfigured composer seeks love with a lovely young opera singer.Starring the man of a thousand faces Lon Chaney as Erik The Phantom and the lovely Mary Philbin as Christine Daae.

Here I’ve taken beautiful scenes from Phantom and edited them together with my song Bulldozer from my album Fools and Orphans.

For tragic love runs between both the song and the eternal story of undying and unrequited love!

the lovely Mary Philbin

A tragic love…!

“A masterpiece of horror that shocked cinema for decades!”

JoGabriel the girl behind the mask of MonsterGirl!
