I was 13 when I saw the original broadcast. It was probably the first time I appreciated ACTING, rather than just being absorbed in the story of a movie, although the story was absorbing, indeed.
I am quite sure it was the first time I ever watched the ending credits of a program carefully in order to catch the name of an actor, and the name Christopher Plummer was welded into my mind.
Cyrano de Bergerac immediately became my favorite character of fiction. I think I have seen every film version of Cyrano ever made, some of them multiple times. I wish I could see this version again, now, through the eyes of an adult, and with the experience of the other versions to compare with it.
