Edmund Rostand's famous story of a large-nosed yet poetic cavalier, who finds himself too ugly to be loved. He bears the pain of his devotion to Roxanne from afar, and helps the handsome but tongue-tied Christian to romance her. Ferrer became famous for this role, which won him an Oscar. Based on Brian Hooke's translation of the play. Also available colorized.
Acting beyond excellent. daswitzer at 2008-08-03 18:26:53
I have watched thousands of movies in my life and I have never seen anyone do a better job than Jose Ferrer did in this movie. (Oscar winner for best leading role) I am mesmerized by his performance. A must-see for film fans. Brilliant!
