Castle of Frankenstein #25, Part 4!

castlefrank25_22castlefrank25_23

While I'm sure most of you know of Paul Williams from his music, or perhaps more pertinently his role as Virgil in Battle for the Planet of the Apes (and maybe his voice work as The Penguin on Batman: The Animated Series), his coverage in this issue of Castle of Frankenstein is for the movie "Phantom of the Paradise," a sort of rock and roll twist on Phantom of the Opera!

This article is basically an interview with Paul Williams about the movie, discussing the plot, the songs he wrote for the movie, locations etc. He does mention his role in Battle for the Planet of the Apes, too!

He also talks about the next movie he planned to make, and there's a synopsis and credits for Phantom of the Paradise.

Next time around: Young Frankenstein!

  3. Yes, he did have a good movie career going for a while, didn't he? Plus, for a while in the 70s it seemed like he turned up on darn near every variety and talk show!
