The Hunchback of Notre Dame

(1923) silent film – with Rob Landes
Saturday, October 29, 2016 – 8pm

Based on the novel by Victor Hugo, Universal Studios gambled $1.25 Million on this picture. It paid off well. Universal grossed more than $3 Million on the picture, which was a fortune in 1923!


LON CHANEY plays the central character, Quasimodo, the deaf bell-ringer of Notre Dame Cathedral. Mr. Chaney did his own miraculous make-up for this role. This film elevated Lon Chaney to full star status.

Lon Chaney was the child of deaf-mute parents, and thus he identified with characters who were afflicted with some sort of disability. He brings life as well as pathos and believability to Quasimodo.

The most ambitious project in the history of Universal Studios, the massive cathedral set was one of the largest sets ever built in the history of Hollywood.

You will see why this film cemented Universal’s position as “The house of horror” through the 1940s.

ROB LANDES began studying the piano at the age of three and made his “debut” on the Art Linkletter House Party program at the age of four.

A native Houstonian, his playing has taken him from the United States and Canada, to Norway, France, Germany, the UK and Norway. Landes is widely known as a pianist, organist, arranger, conductor and published composer. He is associated with six national publishers.

The Rob Landes Trio is well known for performances in concert at Jones Hall, The Wortham Theatre, The Tower Theatre, The Houston Jazz Festival and the Galveston Opera House. They appeared weekly for three years on Channel 13’s Good Morning Houston.

 Rob has been the Organist and Artist-in-Residence at St. Luke’s United Methodist Church since 1996.

He has 16 CDs.
