when in paris
everyone goes to see notre dame cathedral. even if you don't enter you stand there in the square among the throngs of tourists and portrait artists. the size, the gargoyles! i have stood staring up at the splendor many times and always forget this touching scene from 'the hunchback of notre dame.' charles laughton is just incredible as the character 'quasimodo.' such a sad tale.
