Summary, etc.:
Lon Chaney as Quasimodo looks as if he had just stepped out from the original illustrations of Victor Hugo's novel. The sets depicting fifteenth-century Paris covered nineteen acres of Universal Pictures' back lot and included the facade of Notre Dame Cathedral. Filming took six months and the climactic sequence employed 2000 extras, but it's Lon Chaney's performance that makes the character unforgettable. Mastered from a multi-tinted 16mm print struck in 1926 from the original camera negative.
