User Reviews

Mason is the most memorable of all Roxannes.

Marsha Mason's Roxanne is the most memorable of all that I have seen (seven so far). The character is usually played as a typical ingenue without any depth. Marsha breathes humanity into her - hers is the only Roxanne that has ever made sense. Why would such a complex man as Cyrano fall for Roxanne unless she were just as extraordinary, just as complex as he. Marsha has the intelligence to understand this - this is one production that deserves to be resurrected on video. Although in black and white, it is a beautiful production and Marsha radiates in what I believe is her best recorded performance.
