Clopin bought Esmeralda from the gypsies when she was young. Dancing in the square at the festival, Esmeralda is spotted by Jehan, the evil brother of the good archdeacon Claude Frollo. When he sets Quasimodo out to kidnap Esmeralda, Phoebus, Captain of the Guards, rescues her and captures Quasimodo. Quasimodo is sentenced to be flogged, and the only one who will give him water while he is tied in the square is Esmeralda. After Clopin forces Esmeralda to leave Phoebus at the ball, she sends a note to Phoebus to meet her at Notre-Dame. In the garden, Phoebus is stabbed in the back by Jehan. Esmeralda is accused of stabbing Phoebus, convicted by the courts and sentenced to hang. Clopin, Phoebus and Quasimodo all try different ways to save Esmeralda.

The first feature film of Hugo's novel is a large, lavish production with the proverbial cast of 1000's. Man of a Thousand faces Lon Chaney plays the title character and is both hideous and sympathetic. That it is silent and in black and white (although there are many tinted scenes, which are cool) might deter less adventurous viewers, but the story is compelling, the sets impressive and the performances good. Also, recommended: the Chaney version of "The Phantom of the Opera." You can also find this film streaming on Netflix.
