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!"

Jacobi extraordinary in RSC taping of complete play.

This is, to my knowledge, the only complete presentation (three hours) of the five act play. The Royal Shakespeare Company is as always exemplary and Derek Jacobi's Cyrano is extraordinary. Right up there with the Jose Ferrer performance. Cusack's Roxanne is not as intelligent as it needs to be (why is this role almost always directed and acted incorrectly). Christopher Benjamin is an adequate though not outstanding Christian - and no way near pretty enough for the role. Pete Postlethwaite's Ragueneau is a sheer delight - a wonderful creation that holds its own with Jacobi's. The video of this production is available (according to Videohound) from Video Catalog and Turner Entertainment. Very much worth owning.
