    This tale of a man with no comfortable place in scandalous medieval Europe has become the story of a poignant hero. When Quasimodo, the hunchback of Notre Dame, appears before the masses as the "Pope of Fools", the crowd beholds an enormous cyclops-like creature. His whole body seems a twisted grimace. Yet, with all his deformity, there is a certain grace and agility in him and he possesses an endearing passion...and when the gypsy Esmerelda stands between his two executioners, Quasimodo makes the ultimate sacrifice.
