The Phantom of the Opera (USA, 1925)
This film has beautiful acting, not only by Lon Chaney, but also by Mary Philbin. However, the plot can be rather confusing, specially for those who are unfamiliar with the novel. The production of the film had some problems and filming was remade some times. Thus, despite being a carefully made film, the excessive melodrama, which was into fashion in big Hollywood studios on late 1920s, hindered the smooth flow of film.
