Hunchback Header

In their latest email newsletter, the fine folks at Flicker Alley have announced that they will be releasing Wallace Worsley’s 1923 adaptation of The Hunchback Of Notre Dame.

You’ll be able to pre-order the release soon, and they list it as tentatively available next month.

“Flicker Alley, in association with the Blackhawk Films Collection, is proud to present THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, starring Lon Chaney as Quasimodo, looking as if he had just stepped out from the original illustrations of Victor Hugo’s novel.”

“This beautiful Blu-ray edition is mastered from a multi-tinted 16mm print struck in 1926 from the original camera negative and represents the best condition in which this landmark films survives today. The edition includes a new symphonic score arranged by Donald Hunsberger. ”
