Synopsis
This color film remained completely faithful to the play, down to its tragic ending. Being an Italian production, it was heavy on spectacle. Cyrano de Bergerac is one of the greatest swordsmen of 17th century Paris, but his courage, poetry, and wit can't make up for his grotesque nose. Although he is in love with his cousin, Roxanne (Linda Moglia), he keeps it a secret. The handsome Christian (Angelo Ferrari), however, is eager to declare his love for the fair Roxanne, but he doesn't have the gift for words that Cyrano does. So de Bergerac offers to help him out, and Christian wins her. Both men go to war, and Christian, who discovers that Cyrano loves Roxanne, allows himself to die in battle. Cyrano, however, still does not confess the truth. Roxanne herself finds out years later, after the former hero has been reduced to poverty. Cyrano dies of wounds he has received in a fight with his enemies. ~ Janiss Garza, All Movie Guide

This is really a list by AKrizman, too, who took a Daily 5 and, appropriately, doubled it.
