When Christine is taken to the Phantom's Lair the first time (at roughly 38 minutes into the film), as the Phantom sings, he leads her by the hand from the gondola to the "Christine" mannequin. On their way, near the pipe organ is a Roman-style bust of a man's head with a dark strip of cloth askew over its left eye. When the Phantom sings "Let your soul take you." and "Savor each sensation." the strip of cloth is wide (like a sweat band), but when he sings "Let the dream begin." a 10th of a second later, the cloth has become very narrow - thin, like a bow tie. It turns back into the sweat band version again after Christine's nap. See more...
The Phantom only has fourteen lines of spoken dialogue. The rest of his lines are sung. See more...
