!!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.

Later that night, however, Esmeralda temporarily marries the poet, to [[CitizenshipMarriage save his life]] from her friends at the [[JokerJury Court of Miracles]]. That doesn't mean she's going to let her new "husband" touch her, mind you, or that she's going to give up her dreams of marrying Phoebus. Phoebus likes the look of her, himself, and although he's already engaged to his teenage cousin Fleur-de-Lys, he's not opposed to a bit on the side.
