||Hunchback of Notre Dame|
Awfull The only thing nice was seeing beautifull Gina mario.
By misterm458 (Hicksville,NY)
This is the best version of the Hunchback story in my opinion. I always thought the Charles Lawton was tedious in his portrayal of Quazimodo. Anthony Quinn is marvelous.

||"Sanctuary! Sanctuary! But - a downbeat ending!|
Hunchback Of Notre Dame video This film has stunning colour and sets -but the ending is far removed from Disney's classical remake of the 90's which in my opinion is more likeable due to it's happier ending. Hunchback Of Notre Dame film Anthony Quinn here, gives a majestic performance as Quasimodo and the outstandingly sexy Gina Lolobrigida was never more beautiful than in this film. Everybody knows (or should know)the story by now, Frollo is the protector of Quasimodo the Hunchback bell-ringer of Notre Dame - and both of them have something burning for the despised and persecuted gypsy girl Esmerald (Frollo out of 'demonic lust' and Quasimodo because she was good to him and gave him water when he was previously bound and flogged). However, Esmeralda is more in love with Phoebus, who in this film is far removed from the first class hero portrayed in Disney's remake. Everything eventually leads to disaster! This film has an uneasy, unusual atmosphere that gives a gothlike impression of being both surreal and odd(Esmeralda is accused of witchcraft by practising alchemist Frollo and has her foot crushed in a vice until she naturally confesses), and the ending where Esmeralda is killed and Quasi throws Frollo from the cathedral before tragically lying down to die with the gypsy girl are also daunting! I don't know if this version is more true to the original tale as I've never read the story as it was originally written, but a very sad ending makes me like Disney's version better due to it's more acceptable happy ending. Evenso, if you like 1950's costume dramas and epics, this is still a great film to own, and it has several good performances (especially by Quinn and Lolobrigida). But don't expect happy endings!!!
