Fake Noses and Extra Letters

Oh, the '80s. Steve Martin stars in an updated version of Cyrano de Bergerac entitled Roxanne. Is the double N intentional or an oversight? This is good example of how great ideas get updated for the silver screen. Plus, this film is worth it just for the horrible prosthetic nose Steve Martin wears. Makes you wonder what fake noses looked in the 1800s.
