Trivia

The best-known adaptation of Don Quixote is arguably the musical 'Man of La Mancha', which has been produced on stage with, among others, José Ferrer. One of the actors that Terry Gilliam considered for the role in this film was Gérard Depardieu who, like Ferrer, has also played Cyrano de Bergerac. Fittingly, Cyrano is at one point asked if he has read Don Quixote, to which he replies, "I've practically lived it!" See more »
