Victor Hugo's epic novel Notre-Dame de Paris comes to life in this masterful film adaptation--The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Paris, 1482. At a time when the inevitable change of the coming Renaissance roils medieval France, the beauty of the poor, outcast gypsy Esmeralda (Maureen O'Hara) becomes an uncontrollable lure for corrupt High Justice Frollo (Cedric Hardwicke), valiant, handsome Captain Phoebus (Alan Marshall), impoverished poet Gringoire (Academy Award winner Edmund O'Brien) and, not least, the hideous, kind and noble hunchback, Quasimodo (Academy Award winner Charles Laughton). Now the desire these four men feel for Esmeralda will lead to tragedy in one of the greatest romantic dramas ever filmed.
