The W.E. "Wes" Shank Collection of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror Memorabilia
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Universal Pictures, 1923. A U.S. title lobby card and scene card, matted and framed together. The formidable cast of the film graces the title lobby card of this Wallace Worsley-directed epic, with the second lobby card featuring Chaney as the King of Fools at The Festival of Fools. Chaney's commitment to the role via facial makeup and bodily weights is legendary; what isn't often mentioned was his cognitive dedication, as he stated in a 1923 interview: "Quasimodo and I lived together–until we became one. When I played him, I forgot my own identity completely and for the time being lived and suffered with the Hunchback of Notre Dame."
Overall: 22 x 32.25 in.; cards within mats: 10.75 x 13.5 in.

Saleroom notices

  • Please note that each lobby card is linen-backed and each measures 11 x 14 in.
