Synopsis

With Valentine's Day approaching and the Playhouse Theatre production starring James McAvoy well under way, we thought we'd bring you Cyrano de Bergerac's first instance on film.


The earliest film adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s classic tale of swashbuckling and unexpressed love, this 1923 version of the familiar French story (the nasally over-endowed poet, soldier and duelist Cyrano de Bergerac, his beloved Roxanne, her would-be lover Christian) features frame-by-frame Pathéchrome (Pathé Stencil Colour), a true labour-intensive rarity of the Silent Era and a real treat for the eye!


Live musical accompaniment by John Sweeney
