Don Post's canceled QUASIMODO of forty years ago
« on: July 27, 2022, 01:49:23 AM »


The big bells toll for our final Quasi-classic this month, one of the best surprises in DP's
fabulous 1982 catalog >



They were thinly cast at $52 retail but worth it for a wearable likeness of
Quasimodo from RKO's 1939 movie masterpiece >

       

Presumed to be in public domain, production continued through 1982 and beyond.



There were modifications in finishing work along the way: the hair fibre changed to
a coarser texture and some had heavier beard stubble painted on >



Although catalogued in 1983, it didn't finish out the year.



The story goes that production was ordered ceased by whatever entity still held
a copyright on the character. 'No wonder he looks so sullen >



Luckily I was able to score a copy early on and later had it custom refinished. My painter
even added a glass eye and "milked" it for full effect >



Here's your last chance this month to reply with pics of more Quasimodo masks.
While you're at it, wish Don Post a Happy Birthday in case he looks in on this thread.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DON!!

Great find, Dr. Terror! I was a huge fan of Police Squad! back in the day.

Sir, that's a great copy. I have no Quasimodos (or even Reallymodos) but yours is terrific!
