Gartenberg Media Announces


Lon Chaney in THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME  on Blu-ray

Available for North American Institutional Sales


Gartenberg Media Enterprises is proud to announce the classic silent motion picture THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, starring the legendary Lon Chaney and published on Blu-ray disc by Flicker Alley, as the latest addition to our catalog of titles available for institutional sales in North America.


Adapted from the classic novel Notre-Dame de Paris (1831) by Victor Hugo (Les Misérables, 1862) THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME is a massive production; the sets depicting 15th-century Paris covered nineteen acres of the Universal Pictures back-lot and included the façade of Notre-Dame Cathedral.  Filming took six months. and the climactic sequence employed two thousand extras.  But, it is the performance of Lon Chaney as Quasimodo, the hunchbacked bell-ringer, that makes the film so 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 a fortune for Carl Laemmle and the then fledgling Universal Pictures; and it turned Lon Chaney into one of the most popular stars of the silent era and the screen legend known as The Man of A Thousand Faces!


This edition is mastered from a multi-tinted 16mm print struck in 1926 from the original camera negative.  The film is not known to have survived in 35mm.  Visible wear in the source material has been diminished with a moderate amount of digital restoration.  It is pictorially much better than earlier video editions and represents the best condition in which this landmark film survives today.  A new symphonic score arranged by Donald Hunsberger was recorded in the Czech Republic by full orchestra conducted by Robert Israel.

Running Time: 110 minutes.
