« The Hunchback of Notre Dame »

"The Hunchback of Notre Dame" is a two-hour nightmare. It's murderous, hideous and repulsive. No children can stand its morbid scenes, and there are likely but few parents seeing it first who will permit their young to see it afterward. Mr. Chaney's performance as a performer entitles him to starring honors - it makes him forever more on the screen, but his make-up as the Hunchback is propaganda for the wets. His misshapened figure from the hump on his back to the deadeyed eye on his face cannot stand off his acting nor acrobatics, nor his general work of excellence throughout this film. "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" is misery all the time, nothing but misery, tiresome, loathsome misery that doesn't make you feel any the better for it.
