I'm pretty sure that was the thesis of Disney's Hunchback.

"So here is a riddle to guess if you can
Sing the bells of Notre Dame:
What makes a Monster and what makes a Man?"

/most underrated Disney movie.

Is subby implying that Hugo wrote two novels about the Hunchback of Notre Dame? The "other, better novel"? Either subby can't read- there's only one novel, though it was released under different titles, and they're basing the TV series off of that one novel- or subby can't write and is a moron.

Read the book. You won't like the Disney-fied version as much, it radically alters major parts of the plot and, as a result, a lot of the messages Hugo was trying to express with the book. You'll also probably be shocked that Disney even tried to make a kids movie out of it.

It made no sense at all as a Disney film. That said, Hellfire was great.

my main problem with the Disney movie were the Gargoyles.

I really should. I feel at this point that I can enjoy the Disney movie as a separate entity from the source material. I really didn't understand why Disney took on such a dark character as Frollo, and yet try and make such a light movie surrounding him.

Nine Hundred and Eight: my main problem with the Disney movie were the Gargoyles.


I can only imagine it was the producers going "this is a family film, we need more comic relief." I just skip their song and it's a much better film.

I did. 8 times as a child.
I want to biatch slap anyone who thinks the Musical is in anyway fair to the author.

Fark the big gay-ass musical.
the book, that was the original and only work of art here.

And how he meets Esmeralda at the gathering of thieves, and the dummy on wires covered in bells. Testing pick pocket skills.
He is married to her by the thieves, as I recall. It's been 50 years since I read it.
I've faithfully avoided the entire Disney Shiat Tsunami where they whored out any possible merit of the literature.

"So I decided on a sequel, and I says to myself, I says, 'what if Esmerelda, Frollo, and the Hunchback DIDNT die.' The rest, naturally, wrote itself."

I liked the Charles Laughton movie.  Although I can say that about any Laughton movie I've seen.

I like the book, even if Victor Hugo has the "write 600 pages for a 300-400 page book" syndrome everyone in the 1800s seemed to have.

\that number, of course, goes WAY the fark up with Les Mis
\\Can't get past Waterloo - seriously, I don't care if it turns out Thernadier is really Napoleon and Wellington's lovechild, I don't need that much info about a battle that takes place a decade before the main events of the book
