1925. Lon Chaney version (An amazing silent film and one of my favourite adaptations. <3)

1943. Claude Rains version (This one has a different backstory, but has a lot of gorgeous opera scenes.)

1962. Herbert Lom version (It's also quite different from the original, but still good.)

1974. "The Phantom of the Paradise" (A rock musical that takes place in the 20th century. The plot is a mix of POTO and Faust. This film is pretty crazy (and a bit low budget) but I like it and the 음악 is very good.)

1983. Maximilian Schell version (This takes place in Budapest (my hometown<3) instead of Paris and the plot has almost nothing to do with the original.)

1989. Robert Englund version (This is a slasher horror with some time travelling elements. I personally like Robert Englund's portrayal of Erik.)

1990. Charles Dance version (This is another quite different story and also has a stage musical adaptation (Yeston/Kopit) and also one of my favourite adaptations.)

1998. Julian Sands version (This one is awful. If 당신 watch it, remember I warned you! :P)

2004. Gerard Butler version (A film adaptation of the ALW musical. It has some good things, but not my favourite.)

As for books, there is the original Gaston Leroux, so if 당신 haven't read it already I advise 당신 to start right now!!!! It's amazing! It's 더 많이 of a 고딕 horror/mystery novel so if 당신 expect full romance like the ALW musical, then probably 당신 will be a bit disappointed, but believe me: it deserves reading!!! :)
The other 책 are fanfictions (like Phantom 의해 Susan Kay 또는 The Phantom of Manhattanby Frederick Forsyth). If 당신 like the genre then there is a chance 당신 will like these, (personally I don't like them), but I advise 당신 to do some research before 당신 choose to read one if 당신 don't want to be surprised with 랜덤 alternate endings, shippings and weed-smoking Eriks. :P

These are the stuffs that came to my mind now, but there are countless of other adaptations from awful horrors to Sherlock-Phantom crossovers and all-female musicals! (For me the Phantomreviews 유튜브 channel helped a lot with finding new verisons.) I hope I could help you! :) Enjoy watching/reading these! <3

Which version is Micheal Crawford in? Seeing as how everyone apparently likes him.

He was the original Phantom in thw Webber musical both on Westend and Broadway (and my personal favourite <3). There are no official recordings of him on stage, but there are a few bootlegs on youtube, some gala performances and a 음악 video made for The 음악 of the night, which is almost like a stage recording btw. He also sings on the original cast CD, (but I don't think it's the best recording with him, he sings many POTO songs way better in 음악회, 콘서트 또는 on his own CDs).

Update! Finally got Susan Kay's book and I AM IN 사랑 WITH IT! I swear she gives Leroux a run for his money. As far as Forsyth's book, it was so awful, I couldn't even get past the first chapter. But there is another book that I have been in 사랑 with and if 당신 haven't already read it, I seriously recommend it. It's called Letters to Erik. Very Lerouxy. Picks up where Leroux left off and goes from there. Also it gives Erik a happy ending(spoiler alert:he didn't really die). It's available on 아마존 의해 An Wallace.
