There are two notable film adaptations: one from 1950 in English (using the Hooker translation) which garnered a Best Actor for José Ferrer, and the acclaimed [[Film/CyranoDeBergerac 1990 French version]] directed by Jean-Paul Rappeneau and starring Creator/GerardDepardieu (with the Burgess trsnslation later used for subtitles). In addition, the 1987 movie ''Film/{{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).

** De Guiche likens Cyrano to Literature/DonQuixote, causing Cyrano to point out that that puts De Guiche in the roll of the windmill.

* HeelFaceTurn: de Guiche, to an extent, at the end of the play. It seems that he realizes how much he hurt Roxane through his machinations, and has mellowed significantly. Even before that, he surprises everyone in Act IV by electing to stay at the front and fight alongside the men under his command who are facing Certain Doom... even though his rank as an officer would allow him to lead from the rear.

Possibly he discovered then that GoodFeelsGood.
