Cyrano de Bergerac (1950)


France, 1640: Cyrano, the charismatic swordsman-poet with the absurd nose, hopelessly loves the beauteous Roxane; she, in turn, confesses to Cyrano her love for the handsome but tongue-tied Christian. The chivalrous Cyrano sets up with Christian an innocent deception, with tragic results. Much cut from the play, but dialogue not rewritten.

I have always loved this movie, and thought it would be great fun trimming it down for this contest. Little did I know that I would have to chop out almost all of my favorite parts to get it down to size. I think next time I will choose something a little less close to my heart.
