"Phantom of the Paradise" is a 1974 American musical rock opera horror comedy film written and directed by Brian De Palma, scored by and starring Paul Williams. A disfigured composer writes music for a woman he loves. The story is a loosely adapted mixture of classics: Gaston Leroux's "Phantom of the Opera," Oscar Wilde's "Picture of Dorian Gray" and "Faust" by Goethe/Christopher Marlowe. "Phantom of the Paradise" received Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations.
