Subject: The Phantom of The Paradise

Has anyone here heard of Phantom of The Paradise?  It's one of my favorite films, and musicals from the 70's.

Interesting question...Strangely, I saw it at the drive in movies in 1975 as a double header (with The Rocky Horror Picture Show). While I thought TRHPS was the better film (and I really got into the soundtrack)....I really enjoyed The Phantom of the Paradise (with Paul Williams I recall). Two unique films (at that time)...and a great night at the movies.

I have rarely heard The Phantom film mentioned since that night.... :-\\

I saw it in a double billing with The Rocky Horror Picture Show, later on in the 70's, but my memory of the film has combined with the two.

I bought this DVD at a flea market for about 1 or 2 dollars. I thought this was one of the worst movies that I ever paid 1 or 2 dollars for...

I've seen it, don't remember too much about it.  Jessica Harper was in it, she later starred in Shock Treatment, the sequel to Rocky Horror.

I have seen 'The Phantom of the Paradise' before but it was too much for me. I think I had a headache by the time the credits rolled.
