The Hunchback of Notre DameThe Hunchback of Notre Dame

This edition is mastered from a multi-tinted 16mm print struck in 1926 from the original camera negative.
(The film apparently does not survive in 35mm)

For years film historians have accepted the legend that Irving Thalberg, who was in charge of production at Universal Studios in the early 1920s, was the driving force behind the production of The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

The Reverend Gary Davis Story

"…a singular artist whose music reaches us still.”
– New York Times.



This rich portrait tells the story of Reverend Gary Davis, the great blues, ragtime and gospel musician. Tracing his journey from the tobacco warehouses of the rural South to the streets of Harlem, the film is a loving biography of an artist whose unique style and remarkable skills on the guitar made him an icon in 1960s New York and inspired a generation of musicians.
