    I just watched the 1928 movie The Man Who Laughs. What an amazing movie and what an amazing rabbit hole this was, all the way to Batman and The Joker. This is why I am a subscriber, not just for the stories we read, but for all the amazing tidbits along the way. Thanks for telling me about this book. The Hunchback of Notre Dame is one of my favorite books and I never even knew Victor Hugo wrote The Man Who Laughs. Thanks again.
