The Phantom of Hollywood is a 1974 American made-for-television mystery film starring Jack Cassidy, Skye Aubrey, Peter Lawford, Jackie Coogan, Broderick Crawford, Peter Haskell, John Ireland and Corinne Calvet. It is notable for being one of the last films shot on the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer back lot, which was being demolished at the time of filming.

Contents

The film aired on CBS Television, and was originally titled The Phantom of Lot 2. A riff on Gaston Leroux's The Phantom of the Opera, it was produced and directed by Gene Levitt.

Synopsis

Murders taking place on the back lot of Worldwide Studios turn out to be the work of a disfigured actor who has been living there for years and will stop at nothing to cease the sale of the back lot to developers. The film seems to place a lot of emphasis on the chalk outline and one character is even heard to quip, "We're going to be running out of chalk," while standing over a murder scene in a dry pool on the set.
