Cyrano De Bergerac

Jose Ferrer stars as Cyrano De Bergerac, a man blessed with a wit as sharp as a knife, a stunning intellect and he is a skilled swordsman, but he is cursed with an incredibly long nose. Ferrer is in love with the strikingly beautiful Mala Powers, but she is in love with handsome William Prince, instead. For Prince, this is all fine and dandy except for one thing: he can't speak to his love intelligently for beans. Ferrer offers to write speeches for Prince and he accepts, but Ferrer grows more fond of Powers every day. Entertaining with a humorous dialogue and exciting swashbuckling scenes. I would recommend this flick, but there are two updates that are just as good or even better. In 1990, Gerard Depardieu starred in a remake with the same name, and in 1987, Steve Martin starred in a modern update called "Roxanne."
