There are two notable film adaptations: one from 1950 which garnered a Best Actor for Josť Ferrer, and the acclaimed 1990 version directed by Jean-Paul Rappeneau and starring Creator/GerardDepardieu. In addition, the 1987 movie ''{{Roxanne}}'', starring Steve Martin, is a modernized take on the story. The Disney Channel original movie ''Let it Shine'' is also clearly based off of this play, even going as far as to giving the main characters similar names (Cyrano= Cyrus; Christian= Chris; Roxanne= Roxy, whose full name is actually Roxanne).

* BerserkButton: The cadets warn their new recruit Christian not to mention the word "nose" around Cyrano if he values his life. Christian decides to show off by doing it anyway, pushing Cyrano nearly to strangle him before he learns who he is. Some actors portraying Cyrano show him growing more visibly annoyed at Christian's interruptions and play up the comedy of his attempting to compose himself.

But before this scene, he killed De Valvert for saying "you have a big nose".

* BrokenAce: Cyrano, Renaissance man, legendary poet, duelist, soldier, philosopher, physicist, musician, playwright, novelist and excellent actor, who also is an ugly, writhing pile of MommyIssues, who systematically throws away every chance of success he has, would rather help some other guy get the girl he loves than confess to her, and assiduously kills anyone who mocks his [[BerserkButton enormous nose]].

Pass The Popcorn is about eating food while watching things, not just about being callous
* PassThePopcorn: They donít eat anything, but the audience of the Burgundy Theater is pretty excited to see Cyrano's exploits.

Added DiffLines:
* HomosocialHeterosexuality: The play is more about Cyrano and Christian than it is about poor Roxanne. They come to care far more genuinely for each other than either do for her. Practically Cyrano's last words to her are to beg that she keep on loving Christian's memory and grieving for him.

* LoveAtFirstSight: [[{{Deconstruction}} Deconstructed]], as Roxane tells Cyrano she fell in love with Christian this way, and his response amounts to, "Are you nuts?! You don't even know a single thing about the guy, and you're in love with him?!" (When he meets Christian, however, he admits he can't blame her, [[EvenTheGuysWantHim as he is good-looking]] and proves to be as brave as the stories about him say). Roxane later apologizes to Christian, saying it was wrong of her to fall for him purely for his appearance and that she's learned to love him for his soul (right lesson, wrong guy!).
