    Description

    The Hunchback of Notre Dame (RKO, 1949). Folded, Very Fine+. First Post-War Release German A1 (23.5" X 33").
    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). Both can be found on this gorgeous piece of post-war German paper, the first that Heritage has ever had this pleasure of offering. It has light edge and fold wear, minor fold separations, soft creases, and a minute bit of paper loss in the bottom right corner. Folded, Very Fine+.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
