    The Hunchback of Notre Dame (RKO, 1939). One Sheet (27" X 41").
    In a stunning and sensitive portrayal, Charles Laughton brings Victor Hugo's deformed bell-ringer, Quasimodo, to life for the first time in the sound era. Daringly different than the more monstrous character immortalized in 1923 by Lon Chaney, Laughton's Quasimodo is a tender, almost poetic creature who falls in love with the gypsy girl Esmeralda (Maureen O'Hara). When she is wrongly accused of murder and sentenced to the gallows, Quasimodo rescues her, at the cost of his own life. This sublime one sheet features lush artwork and retains excellent color and clarity. There were corner pinholes, a tear on the left side of the image area, one minor crossfold separation, a small stain in the right side of the image area, and small chips in the top right border and and corner, all of which has been addressed with professional restoration. This is a very tough one sheet to find in any condition, much less one this clean! From the Theaters of Old Detroit Collection. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
