This is the first time we used a video clip. Thanks to Karen Kramer for permission to use the clip in this contest.
The video clip is from the 1950 production of Cyrano de Bergerac, starring Jose Ferrer, directed by Michael Gordon, and produced by Stanley Kramer.
Synopsis: Cyrano de Bergerac, the honorable and virtuous soldier-poet with the well recognized tragic flaw of his enormous nose, has just disrupted a play in the local theatre. The actor on stage is a decadent man and a womanizer who has eyes for Cyrano's love, Roxanne. Vicomte de Valvert, a noble in lieu with the partron of the actor, has decided to stand up against Cyrano for his disruption of the playhouse. After an exchange of words, the Vicomte accepts Cyrano's open challenge to a duel. Cyrano prepares himself, and adds a twist: He states he will recite a ballade, made up on the spot during the duel, and when he reaches the end of the refrain, he claims he will "thrust home!"Many thanks again to Bill (wrayer) for organizing this challenge. And a big thanks to those who participated in this round! It was a great idea to use a video clip and I hope we do many more of these.
This is a "one-vote-per-person" poll. We'll keep the voting open for about two weeks.
The winner will have their choice of a Steinway Basic or an upgrade to GPO 4th edition.
Enjoy listening and best of luck to the entrants!
