The Juggler of Notre Dame (1970)

[Jessica Benton, Barry Dennen, Christopher Ellis, Dunga Gabor]

Alternate title: The Magic Legend of the Juggler. This is the classic Anatole France story translated to the new world and updated to the 1970's. An amazingly religious and inspirational story, despite the fact that Anatole France was a devout agnostic. Regardless of how many times you see it, you will still gasp and jerk a tear or two at the beautiful climactic ending.

Barry Dennen is the juggler, and performs in several juggling scenes. The trailer shows plate spinning and juggling of oranges.
