Set during the reign of Louis XI. Clopin bought Esmeralda from the gypsies when she was young. Dancing in the square at the festival, Esmeralda is spotted by Jehan, the evil brother of the good archdeacon. When he sets Quasimodo out to kidnap Esmeralda, Phoebus, Captain of the Guards, rescues her and captures Quasimodo. The courts sentence Quasimodo to a flogging, and the only one who will give him water while he is tied in the square is Esmeralda. Quasimodo falls in love with her. After Clopin forces Esmeralda to leave Phoebus at the ball, she sends a note to Phoebus to meet her at Notre Dame. In the garden, Phoebus is stabbed in the back by Jehan. Esmeralda is accused of stabbing Phoebus, convicted by the courts and sentenced to hang. When Esmeralda again rejects Jehan, he tells her that Phoebus is dead, even though it is not true.

[The hunchback of Notre Dame (silent film)]: A deformed bellringer at Notre Dame cathedral in Paris in the late 15th century, rescues a gypsy girl from the evil intentions of her guardian. As the bellringer, Quasimodo, Lon Chaney is a marvel of makeup and nonverbal expression, shuffling through the streets of medieval Paris, communing with the cathedral gargoyles, dutifully suffering the lash and humiliation for a crime committed against another, expressing a heart-rending love for a beautiful gypsy who naively sees only a cruel military officer as the heroic ideal. Based on the novel by Victor Hugo
