  • SpacePirate's rating of the film The Phantom of Paris

    One of Gilberts better sound films, but unfortunately by this point his career was essentially over. He gives a great performance, but there is a decidedly "B" feel to the whole film, no doubt done on purpose by MGM. What could have been a really good film suffers, and as such, is just ok. Gilbert tries to carry it though and I'll add an extra half star for his gusto. 3.5 stars
