Birthday Boy Steve Martin On Sony Movies Classic

Friday, August 21st, 2020

Steve Martin, who recently celebrated his 75th birthday, is a modern-day Cyrano De Bergerac in riotous romantic comedy Roxanne (Friday 21st, 9pm). This ‘80s remaking of Edmond Rostand’s classic Cyrano de Bergerac story sees Martin as C.D. Bates, the quick-witted fire chief of a Washington State resort town. Bates’ most trusted fireman is the handsome but tongue-tied Chris McConnell.

When both men fall in love with the beautiful Roxanne (Daryl Hannah), Bates is convinced that he’ll never win Roxanne’s heart. So, in the self-sacrificing tradition of Cyrano de Bergerac, Bates woos Roxanne vicariously by lending his voice and poetry to his rival
