Notre Dame de Paris' (1956) DVD, New & Sealed.
Noting that this was a dubbed foreign (French) film and done on a low budget for the time, one has to look past the lack of cinema technology of the time and place, but just get lost in this magnificent performance as if it were, as it was... on stage. Gina Lollobrigida is captivating and very sensual for 1956 and Anthony Quinn's portrayal of Quasimodo is riveting; a truly academy award performance, but they just wouldn't give anybody two in one year and he already had on lock in as a supporting actor.
