My European Faces: Quasimodo, exploited creature, French, European


Quasimodo, the Hunchback of Notre Dame 1939, played by Sir Charles Laughton

The Hunchback of Notre Dame, 1939: Exploited creature, cruel mob, abuse of power, persecuted minority; the film is based on a book by Victor Hugo, a French writer, starring Sir Charles Laughton, a British actor, directed by William Dieterle, a German director, and filmed while Germany tried to subdue Europe. When Laughton heard the news that Great Britain had declared war on Germany, he rang the bells until he collapsed. Just another European story…
