Dialog starts at the beginning. The big scene leading to the finish and capture of the Phantom is silent action. Synchronized score accompanies throughout with sound effects added to former silent scenes and singing obviously dubbed in for solos. This is particularly noticeable in a sequence where Philbin does a Faust favorite. Only scenes in color are a few of the opera and a masque ball but they are okay.

Only substitution in cast is Edward Martindel, talking the part played formerly by John Sainpolis. Others who appeared in the original picture, including John Miljan, are out through cutting of lesser scenes.
