1923 - The Hunchback of Notre Dame

For 1923 our discussion is on The Hunchback of Notre Dame, directed by Wallace Worsley and starring Lon Chaney. It should be stated that we recorded this episode in January (2019), months before the fire at Notre-Dame, which is featured heavily in this movie. So, strangely enough, you can hear all four of us discussing the incredible cathedral, blissfully unaware that in a few months part of it would be gone. Our discussion hovers around the incredible sets and Lon Cheney's (literally) back breaking performance. John also begins psychological profiles on the rest of the hosts, based on responses to Lon Cheney's chest hair. Watch the movie here.
