  1. Knight Phantom, my book, "The Phantom's Redemption" has no graphic sex, it is just a beautiful love story where Erik finds someone who will love him. It is on Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble. Anne
  2. Hi Andrea, Your little boys are adorable. And so neat to have a next generation of Phantom devotees. Which shows the Music of the Night will never end. I love red hair. I made my heroine in my book "The Phantom's Redemption" a redhead as I always wanted to have hair that colour. Mine is just a mousy brown!!! But at almost age 69, most of it is still brown so I guess I should than the good Lord for that. Like most others who have written Phan Phic I am dreaming I am that heroine.Erik's love, of course!! Anne
  3. I just watched it again. it has been two years for me since I first saw it and I have already lost count of how many times I have watched it. That is to say nothing of when I don't have time for the whole movie, I load one into my computer and play my favorite parts. Anne
  4. Without a doubt, POTO is IT for me. I just watched it again last night for the ????th time since I found it in 2008, just about 2 years for me now. I have lost count, but I still get chills when I watch Erik. Now if you want to count the times i have played parts of the movie scenes on the computer, well, that would equal ????more times-LOL. I usually just watch the parts with HIM Has there ever been anything like it? not for me since I first saw a movie in black and white in the forties. I thank God every day for DVD's so I can watch it whenever I want.Forever Erik-always my love. Anne
  5. II have to say, YES, it was definitely POTO. I had seen "Attila" on TV several years before I saw POTO (in 2008) at home since I don't get out much. I don't remember Gerry- just that I liked the movie a lot. Sorry gals, I am afraid I committed a mortal sin here. . When I saw POTO though, my first reaction was "Who is that gorgeous man?" I do not follow celebs much at all. I don't know half of the names on many of the TV shows I watch. I am not impressed by fame, fortune or any of those things. But it was the performance which got to me I have never seen a movie before or since which affected me this way. I actually fell in love with Erik. He was something special to me, he crawled into my heart and has remained there ever since. My home is a POTO shrine, only POTO. I have at least 300 photo's dwnloaded from POTO. Nothing in all my 68 years ever hit me this way. I even wrote a book because my heart ached so for Erik that I wanted him to find someone who loved him after she left. No, I am not one who feels they eventually E&C got together. I don't like the plot for LND, and I will always think of Erik as I wrote him. I am sure many other authors fel the same way, because we potrayed him the way we love him. Anne
  6. I have to agree- Gerry's performance as the Phantom was the most terrific of all his performances that I have seen. it was a performance from the heart, and he really felt all the Phantom was suffering, which made his portrayal so beautiful. I never saw Erik as an evil person. I have read the book, and I found sympathy even for Leroux' Phantom. How many of us cold cope with looking like that and being treated like that. I know as a fat person how badly and cruelly I have been treated. I wrote my book feeling there was more to the Phantom than evil, meanness, anger, cruelty, etc. I gave him a chance at redemption. A few readers have not liked my version. That is their choice. I also don't like reading about a mean cruel Erik. I don't think that was Gerry's idea with his portrayal, and since the movie is the one I love so much, I find his Erik someone very special. Anne
  7. Today, I was written up in the local paper. The article is about writing my book, "The Phantom's Redemption", what drove me to write my first book at my age. Also how much I love POTO and how it has changed my life. There are some mistakes-Bawled is spelled another wrong way-Yikes!!!_ and a couple of things were changed a bit like my Arab horse's colour as well as Phantom's horse in my book, which is black, not "beige"(it was supposed to be bay)LOL. Anyway, if you would like to read the article, the link is: http://www.highspringsherald.com/articles/...news/news02.txt Anne
  8. They also won the US national gold medal which is an automatic ride to the Olympics. It starts Feb. 12th and I can't wait. I love the Winter Olympics best and can't wait to see them skate to Phantom again. Actually, although they used MC's voice in MOTN, they did use the theme from the movie and also some of the ending (orchestral) from the movie. Everytime POTO is used it also helps out wonderful Phantom Erik (Gerry) too. Anne
  9. You are SOOOO lucky. This has been the dream of my heart ever since I first saw Phantom on TV April 2008-to see him on the big screen. When I published my book, I went to the little theater in my small town nearby and tried to get them to show it and they said they would not do it. I was heartbroken. My beautiful Erik on a 30 ft. screen. I can't travel very far, so it would have to be in the city 30 miles close to me in order to see it. Anne
  10. Just a reminder that my new book, "The Phantom's Redemption" which humanized Erik and brings out his hidden gentler side is available on Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble. He finds a special woman who does not care about his face or his past and can love him for himself. There is also a wonderful warm family which takes Erik into their bosom and treats him as their own. It is full of great horses and dogs and I hope you might consider it for a gift. Thanks, Anne
  11. Hi Natalia, I have been here quite a while but when the POTO threads got slim, I found other places too. POTO and Erik are my heart and I never get tired of talking about him. Anne
  12. Funny you should ask, Tracy. I used a grandson of M. Reyer in my book. A fictional one I suppose as I made up the first naem. However, I did read something in one of my many Phantom musings , I think on Wikipedia, where it listed M. reyer as a real person and conductor ther at the opera. Anne
  13. Deb, thank you so much for the beautiful posts. I know how you would feel. being that close to Erik- I will never go, at leat not in this life but I can dream. And your post made it come alive. Erik has been a part of my heart for the past year and 1/2 since I first saw POTO, and it only gets more so as time passes. Anne
  14. Natalie, it is so wonderful to still find latecomers to POTO. I was one. I did not see it until April of 2008. I was totally blown away. At my age, I never thought to see a movie that would hit me the way this one did. I was hooked from the time he was leading Christine to the lair, and I fell in love with Erik when she unmasked him. Cry???I cried not just watching it, but for days afterwards. I watched it 3 times in 4 days on Hallmark, then bought two copies, the wide screen for the extra disc, in which Gerry sings the hauntingly beautiful "No One Would Listen" on an extra disc. Why ALW did not include it we will never know, but it is recorded there for posterity, Thank the good Lord. What a song. And the words will make you cry too. I then bought a full screen one because I don't have a wide screen TV! This movie so moved me that I felt I had to find someone for Erik, so I wrote a book. At my old age I became a published author al because of Gerry's stunning performance as the Phantom. I hope you might comsider reading my book. The info is listed at the bottom of the page and on my personal page is my book web page. I wish you many many years of enjoying this one of a kind, spectaculay, hauntingly beautiful and "Should have won Oscars" film. Anne
