The “Stella” daguerreotype portrait of Edgar Allan Poe, stolen from the archives of the University of Virginia’s Alderman Library in 1973 along with a large number of other rare manuscripts and materials.
Forty-five artifacts with a currently estimated value of over half a million dollars disappeared. The crime was never solved and the materials, including the daguerreotype, remain missing.

"Susan Kay’s Phantom"
This illustration originally started out as just another piece of fan art based on Susan Kay’s novel, “Phantom” — trying to capture the elegance and mystery of her interpretation of Erik. But when Llumina Press announced that they had bought the rights to Kay’s out-of-print novel and were holding a contest to choose the cover art for the hardcover version of their reprinting, I decided to toss my hat in the ring and took the black and white pencil sketch and gave it a sepia tone makeover for a bit of a vintage feel. The overall inspiration was a dinner scene from the Frank Langella version of “Dracula.”

Esmeralda (1905) is the earliest known screen adaptation of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. It is considered a lost film, and only a few photographs remain.

The most interesting thing about this film is the director, Alice Guy-Blanché, who is the first female film director. She helped pioneer techniques like shooting on location, interracial casting, and special effects. It’s a sure the majority of her films, as with about 90% of all films from this period, are completely gone.

In Les Miserables (1935), another Victor Hugo adaptation, two of the stars would later go on to be in The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and they would play almost opposite roles.

Charles Laughton, who plays the respected, but coldhearted Javert, went on to be the outwardly grotesque, but kind hearted Quasimodo.

Sir Cedric Hardwicke played the pious, corrupted, and sinister Frollo in “Hunchback” while in Les Mis he is a kindly and giving bishop.

The reactions in this scene are outstanding.

How Gringoire is amazed, overjoyed that Esmeralda is being rescued

How Clopin and the beggars cheer

How Frollo scowls

The music is so amazing here, the chorus combined with Alfred Newman’s oscar nominated score, is just so uplifting.

Literally

“The acclamation was unanimous; people rushed towards the chapel. They made the lucky Pope of the Fools come forth in triumph. But it was then that surprise and admiration attained their highest pitch; the grimace was his face.”
Excerpt From: Hugo, Victor. “Notre-Dame De Paris.”
