Hunchback is a huge production: the sets depicting 15th-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 two thousand extras, but it’s Lon Chaney’s performance that makes the character unforgettable. THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME premiered at New York’s Astor Theatre on September 2, 1923. The success of the film was immediate it made Carl Laemmle and Universal Pictures a fortune, and turned Lon Chaney into a screen legend.
“The Hunchback of Notre Dame” is about a child abandoned on the stoop of the Notre Dame Cathedral as a baby. He was taken in by a young priest named Claude Frollo, who recently lost his family to the plague, but the baby is severely disfigured.
