Movie Info

French chemist and microbiologist Louis Pasteur (Paul Muni) is on a quest to cure the ailments of the 19th century. But he's thwarted at every turn by skeptical fellow scientists, chief among them Dr. Charbonnet (Fritz Leiber). He draws scorn when he supports the germ theory, advocating that doctors should wash their hands and sterilize their instruments before working on patients. But Pasteur perseveres, and when anthrax becomes a scourge, he holds the key to solving the epidemic.

    Muni does the biopic over and over and over and over again in his career. Sometimes he falls short but often he is brilliant as he is here as Louis Pasteur.

    I've come to love the performances of Paul Muni through the characters he portrayed in the 30's. He is like a character actor who blends into his character through makeup so fully that you don't recognize him otherwise, and yet he plays the leading man with powerful natural delivery of his lines.
