  • A very watchable silent classic

    • 5/1/11

    I finally watched this movie for the first time about a month or so ago and was really surprised just how watchable this old silent film was. I expected it to be a little on the boring side but was presently surprised that this is not the case. The sets are really impressive, and the large amounts of extras shows that Universal Studios really pumped a lot of money into this film. From what I understand it was their biggest money maker of the silent era. This Lon Chaney Sr. film is what made him a star, and although he is the title character the movie isn't really about him as anyone who has seen the movie knows. I recommend at least at attempt to watch this classic silent film. The print I saw was remarkably well-preserved for such an old film which made it easier to watch as well; very watchable in my opinion.

  • The Birth of a Silent Horror Film Star.

    Lon Chaney achieved real stardom as an actor, when he was cast to star in the very first screen version of Victor Hugo's classic novel. Chaney's make-up artistry is superb, even by today's standards, as he plays the title role of Quasimodo, the malformed bell-ringer, who lurches in the bell towers of Notre Dame, and Patsy Ruth Miller as the beautiful gypsy girl, Esmeralda, of whom, he befriends and defends against an angry mob threatening to hang her for witchcraft. Chaney, once again, had to endure extremely physical discomfort underneath all that make-up especially wearing a 20-pound hump on his back---that's brutal. Remade three times and as a Disney animated feature. With Norman Kerry, Ernest Torrence & Tully Marshall.

  • Classic take on a classic tale

    Astonishingly wonderful film. I recommend this to all silent film fans, Lon Chaney fans, as well as fans of good films in general. It's quite a bit different form the Victor Hugo story, but the changes certainly work well and the story here is fantastic (if you are a fan of the original story, don't be so uptight about keeping true to the source while watching this!)I though the visuals in particular were great; the Gothic architecture sets were a treat to look at and were photographed expertly. Honestly, does anything need to be said about Chaney as the hunchback? Some of the other actors' performances were of typical over-the-top silent film style, but I thought the leads were quite good.Overall good flick, check it out sometime (if you are in the right fromae of mind, of course)
