Quotes

Cyrano de Bergerac: That thing of yours is big, what? Very big.
Cyrano de Bergerac: Precisely what I've been saying.
Le Vicomte de Valvert: Ah!
Cyrano de Bergerac: Nothing more? Just a fatuous smirk? Oh, come, there are fifty-score more varieties of comment you could find, if you possessed a modicum of mind. For instance there's the frank aggressive kind: "If mine achieved such a hypertrophic state, I'd call in a surgeon at once to amputate!" The friendly: "It must dip in your cup, You need a nasal crane to hoist it up." The pure descriptive: "From its size and shape, I'd say...

CYRANO DE BERGERAC - 1985 - Derek Jacobi
8 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

Since viewing this at its original TV slot the performance has niggled at me to see it again! Chance has it that I got dragged to a school performance by the 6th form final years. I was dreading it, but was fully won over and have followed the play since (even read it). I have seen other versions, but the performance by Jacobi really stirred me (he has that great skill to be truly sincere in what he does and I felt his pain).

OK so the set is truly basic at times, but it seemed to take nothing away from the performance.

*********I would really like to track down a copy, so if anyone could help I would be really grateful. Obviusly I am willing to pay a reasonable amount for the copy.*********************** Regards. John
