Through the years Leroux's original novel has had numerous progenies. Fans of Phantom of the Opera are faithful to the versions they love whether it be the musical adaptation of Ken Hill or the film starring Lon Chaney. One thing it seems all Phantom fans appreciate is a deep respect for Gaston Leroux and his vision of a sensual madman? ~Jennifer Linforth
