Trivia

The first television production of Cyrano to use Anthony Burgess's translation, in which Cyrano's list of insults ends with "Oh, that this too, too solid nose would melt," a parody of "Oh, that this too, too solid flesh would melt," from "Hamlet". The translation had already premiered as far back as 1970, and had been used in the 1973 flop musical "Cyrano", starring Christopher Plummer. See more »

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
