That's okay! I had to kid you a bit.

Yep, he was the original Phantom in the movies.

We watched the end of the ball game---Sox won again! Now we're watching a Burns and Allen movie.

That scene was shot in two-color Technicolor (before the three-strip process was developed). A special process in the scene on the roof added some color to the Phantom. If you get the Kino DVD, you can see the effect. In the rest of the film, scenes were tinted various colors by a dye bath. ALL silent films were originally tinted that way, but today we often see only black-and-white prints.
