In 15th-century France, the evil archdeacon of Notre Dame is Claude Frollo (Sir Cedric Hardwicke). Under his command is a deformed hunchback, Quasimodo (Charles Laughton), who is instructed to capture the gypsy Esmeralda (Maureen O’Hara), the object of Frollo’s unrequited lust. When Esmeralda is accused of a murder and sentenced to hang, the stage is set for a gripping confrontation between Frollo and Quasimodo.
