The suspenseful sequel to the genre-defining The Mystery of the Yellow Room Set in a medieval castle on the Côte d'Azur, this classic locked room mystery reunites journalist-turned-detective Joseph Rouletabille; Mathilde Stangerson, daughter of a famed French-American scientist; and master of disguise Frédéric Larsan. Stangerson and her sweetheart Robert Darzac have just married and taken up residence in the Square Tower of the Fort of Hercules when Larsan strikes again. The attack leaves Stangerson frightened and confused, not only because she thought her nemesis dead, but also because she cannot figure out how he entered and escaped her room without notice. Only one man is capable of matching wits with Larsan, but when Rouletabille arrives in the South of France to investigate, he finds himself drawn deeper into his own past and his memories of a mysterious woman in black. Best known as the creator of The Phantom of the Opera, author Gaston Leroux takes the locked room mystery to terrifying new heights in The Perfume of the Lady in Black.

The phantom of the opera by Rupert Julian( visu )
40 editions published between 1925 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 72 libraries worldwide
A l'Opéra de Paris, un mystérieux Fantôme menace les nouveaux directeurs d'une catastrophe imminente si la chanteuse Christine, doublure de la Diva, n'obtient pas le premier rôle. Il tient parole et kidnappe la jeune femme dont il est tombé amoureux, l'entraînant dans son repaire souterrain sous la scène de l'Opéra. Le Vicomte Raoul de Chagny, qui aime et est aimé de Christine, devra la sauver des griffes du Fantôme... Cette première adaptation du roman de Gaston Leroux pour le cinéma en est de loin la meilleure. Réalisé en 1925, le film dont l'esthétique puise dans le cinéma expressionniste allemand constitue LA référence pour tous les films d'horreur produits par Universal dans les années 30, de Dracula à Frankenstein. C'est par ailleurs l'un des premiers films à utiliser le Technicolor bichrome - dans la fameuse séquence du Bal Costumé. La star du cinéma muet Lon Chaney - surnommé l'Homme aux Mille Visages pour son extraordinaire capacité à se métamorphoser d'un rôle à l'autre - exécute ici une de ses meilleures performances, au moins égale à celle du Bossu de Notre-Dame deux ans plus tôt. Il parvient à rendre le personnage du Fantôme Erik, dont il réalisa lui-même le masque et le maquillage, à la fois monstrueux et émouvant. Préparez-vous à trembler d'effroi !
