Another Hollywood Rape of History

No, I’m not referring to something as obvious as Gibson’s Braveheart, Bruckheimmer’s King Arthur or plans to cast Hale Berry as Nefertiti.

I recently watched Phantom of the Opera, Joel Schumacher’s version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s popular stage musical. I’ll try not to spoil you anything. Let’s just say that one small, almost unnoticeable detail ruined the whole experience to anyone remotely familiar with certain very important events in 19th Century Europe.

It was kind of like someone setting a romantic musical in Honolulu in December 1941 and January 1942, where the lovers only sing and talk about their affair and the price of Coca-Cola and nothing else seems to be going on around them.
