The newer Cyrano doesn't hold a candle to Jose Ferrer's tour-de-force classic performance. I taped this off A&E many years ago and now feel very lucky to find it on DVD! If you have any heart in you at all, this wonderful classic will surely touch it. It also has one of the greatest sword fights ever filmed (the second greatest, in my opinion, being that of the one in The Princess Bride, between Cary Elwes (the Dread Pirate Roberts) and Mandy Patinkin (Inugo Montoya, drunken ruffian). If you love REAL classics, finely acted, this Cyrano is for you!
Without a dought the best performance ever by an actor. You can forget the story line altogether and solely admire the increasable character that Jose Ferrer displays. When ever has an actor been asked to display so many characters all in one movie and be flawless in everyone?
