THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME - DVD4520
Victor Hugo's novel of a horribly deformed hunchback bellringer at Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris who saves the beautiful gypsy girl Esmerelda, is vividly brought to life in this classic movie from the silent era.
Allegedly spending three and a half hours in the make-up chair and wearing a seventy two pound rubber hump, Chaney's characterization of the hunchback, Quasimodo truly brings out the pathos of the poor creature. Universal gave the film the full treatment with massive sets and a cast 3500 yet with all this, Chaney still manages to steal the film with a unique performance.
