The hunchback is Quasimodo, the deaf, one-eyed, hunchbacked, monstrously ugly bell-ringer of Notre-Dame Cathedral in [[GayParee Paris]]. Abandoned outside the church at the age of four, he was taken in out of kindness by the Archdeacon of Josas, Claude Frollo, who raised him in the church and introduced him to the bells.

The hunchback is Quasimodo, the deaf, one-eyed, hunchbacked, monstrously ugly bell-ringer of Notre-Dame Cathedral in [[GayParee Paris]].Paris]] - his description far more hideous than any of those cutesy adaptations you might have seen. Abandoned outside the church at the age of four, he was taken in out of kindness by the Archdeacon of Josas, Claude Frollo, who raised him in the church and introduced him to the bells.



Esmeralda's kindness to Quasimodo when he is in the stocks for the kidnapping attempt (Frollo having let him [[TakingTheHeat take the fall]]) makes her an angel in Quasimodo's mind, and he is henceforth devoted to her. This eventually, and painfully, puts him in conflict with Frollo, whose combination of lust and loathing for Esmeralda makes him [[VillainousBreakdown increasingly unstable]].

!!Tropes particular to the 1939 film:

* BittersweetEnding: Esmerelda escapes execution and goes off to be with Gringoire. Quasimodo remains in the cathedral, totally alone. The film ends with him caressing a gargoyle and asking "why was I not made of stone like thee?"
* ChekhovsGun: Workmen specifcally mention a vat of molten lead. Later Quasimodo uses said molten lead to fend off the mob.
* MaleGaze: Frollo's sexual attraction to Esmerelda is more overt here. Note the scene where Esmerelda is looking sideways and talking about the Virgin Mary while Frollo iis staring down her cleavage.
* RightHandCat: Frollo keeps several cats in his study.
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Like most adaptations, this one spares Esmerelda, who is pardoned by the King after Frollo confesses. Quasimodo survives as well.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: Where Esmerelda puts the coin the king throws her.

* UsefulNotes/{{Roma|ni}}: Esmeralda [[spoiler:but not really]]. Probably Quasimodo, by birth.
