Comment: The story THE MUSIC MONSTER is clearly based on the movie THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, which came out in 1943.

Comment: If the book was pub in May 1940.. how did it get influenced by the 1943 movie?? Think maybe the 1925 version with Lon Channey.. thou there was a 1943 version. (google & IMDB info)
