Expert casting and splendid production are the points in the film's favor, primarily. Paul Muni in the title role is at his very top form.

This fictionlized tale of the great French scientist belongs to a cycle of Warner biopics of great men, many of whom were played by Paul Muni, who was Oscar nominated for this part (so was the film).

An excellent biography, just as it is a notable photoplay, dignified in subject, dramatic in treatment and brilliantly played by Paul Muni, Fritz Leiber, Josephine Hutchinson and many other members of the cast.
