Notre Dame Cathedral Replicated: "Hunchback Of Notre Dame" (Lon Chaney, 1923) (video)

Universal's lavish production of Victor Hugo's classic novel...

...cost a whopping one million dollars, a huge budget for 1923.

Much of this cost went toward the duplication of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris.

Construction of this and other sets took six months to a year to complete.

The replica captures much of the beauty and majesty of the original. 

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
