A Night to Forget,
This review is from: The Phantom Of The Opera [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD is issued closely following in the wake of the Lloyd Weber release - the cover graphics are derivative at first glance.The copy of the movie transferred to this DVD is lacking 25% of the original image. Being thus clipped means the titles and intertitles (this is a silent movie) are either partially missing or half seen in an annoying and increasingly irritating manner. Goodness knows the history of this copy but it is not a good print at all. The music added to the movie is a hodge podge of orchestral and instrumental snippets that neither complement nor serve to enhance the impetus of the story. Not worth buying and this is one for all movie buffs to avoid. If I am not mistaken there was also a brief sequence in early colour in this movie. Perhaps I am wrong. What a disappointment all round.

You are right, the masked ball was in two colour technicolour. The reds were particularly vivid as I recall.
