Plot Outline:

Cyrano de Bergerac is a dashing officer and romantic poet and madly in love with his cousin, Roxanne. But he has one glaring fault - his large nose - and he feels so self-conscious about it that he hires a cadet, Christian, to romance her by proxy. But Christian is also in love with Roxanne and as he reads the words written by Cyrano she begins to fall in love. -- Chris Kavan
