This classic romantic tragedy comes alive with a stunning performance by Jose Ferrer as the dashing hero whose large nose standsiin the way of love.
The audacious Cyrano is quick to defend himself against mockery but is weak and timid in love. When he falls for the beautiful Roxanne (Mala Powers) he is frozen with fear. The tongue-twisted Christian (William Prince), also pursuing Roxanne, commissions Cyrano to write love letters that will win her affection. Not until long married to Christian does Roxanne realize the real author of the letters and her true love.
With dialogue of poetic beauty, Cyrano De Bergerac, produced by Stanley Kramer, also features swashbuckling sword fighting sequences and an Academy Award winning performance by Jose Ferrer.
