The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923)

Type: New Blu-Ray


One of the grandest spectacles of silent cinema, this lush adaptation of Victor Hugo's novel is fueled by Lon Chaney's wonderful (and painful) performance as Quasimodo, the deformed 15th-century Parisian bellringer who falls in love with Gypsy dancer Esmerelda (Patsy Ruth Miller) and tries to save her from execution. With Winifred Bryson, Nigel de Brulier, Brandon Hurst, Eulalie Jensen. 4K restoration features a new score by Nora Kroll-Rosenbaum and Laura Karpman. 110 min. Standard; Soundtrack: music score; audio commentary; home movie footage by Chaney; newsreel footage; photo gallery. Silent with music score.
