Let's Not Do It Again! concludes at Trailers from Hell, with director Guillermo del Toro introducing the 1956 French version of "The Hunchback of Notre Dame."

Anthony Quinn and Gina Lollobrigida are the only English-speaking actors in Jean Dellanoy’s turgid version of the Victor Hugo classic. An elaborate production which failed to catch on with audiences or critics, although it’s one of the most faithful adaptations.
