Lon Chaney Sr. was a remarkably talented make-up artist who had previously worked in stage lighting. He used his knowledge of light and shadow to create the iconic monster of the Phantom, one of Universal Studio's most neglected classic monsters. This make-up was kept so under raps before filming, that when he first revealed it to film, everyone was terrified. In the movie theater when the film premiered, salts were kept at hand in case of women fainting, as it did happen.

The 1925 Phantom of the Opera starred Lon Chaney Sr. as the Phantom. Lon Chaney was a well known actor in the silent film industry. Known as the "Man of a Thousand Faces", he was a talented make-up artist, able to create a completely unrecognizable persona for each film.

Cinderella was the second film Disney had done focusing on a princess story, following their film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Disney had been struggling since Snow White's release. Though other films like Pinocchio and Bambi were popular, they did not bring in enough revenue to keep the company on its feet. Cinderella was their last chance to survive, had it not been such a success, the company would have folded. The voice actress for Cinderella was not originally cast for the character, but she read for the lines for some initial test-animation, and Disney liked her so much that they kept her. Because the company was struggling so much at the time, the movie had to be made very quickly, so the studio used a method that used live-action film to use as reference for the animators. This was helpful, but because the artists and animators did not want to cheapen the animation too much, they used it solely as reference, and avoided tracing directly over the film.
