The movie we are going to watch is "Cyrano de Bergerac" starring  Jose Ferrer, Mala Powers and William Prince.
Directed by Michael Gordon (1950, 113 min.).

Cyrano, famed equally for his swordsmanship and poetry, loves his cousin Roxanne but is reluctant to woo her because of a fatal (he believes) liability: a grotesquely enormous nose.

She in turn loves Christian, a new recruit in Cyrano's regiment, and asks Cyrano to protect and assist him.  And so Cyrano finds himself using his eloquence to help his rival, who is tongue-tied around women, woo the woman they both love.

In addition to this drama there is comedy, swordplay, and one of the most bittersweet endings in film history.
