My favourite silent film’s probably Lon Chaney’s Phantom of the Opera.

Ending’s a tad weak, but Chaney’s brilliantly unnerving. And I just love the two-colour Technicolor sequences.

If I were to watch this, which version should I seek out?

Flicker Alley is a great site that puts silent classics on DVDs. They might have one there.

It could be a makeup test or a publicity still. Alternate takes were probably not unusual even in the earliest days. Some silents were shot with two cameras side by side. Apparently done so two negatives of the film would be created. Work has been done to try and create a 3-D version of Phantom Of The Opera from the dual camera footage.

That is plausible
