Critic Reviews for The Story of Louis Pasteur
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.
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.
Muni offers a fine characterization that shows the famed scientist as a man faced with extraordinary obstacles.
Oone of the most stirring and memorable of the great Warner Bros biopics.
Audience Reviews for The Story of Louis Pasteur
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.
The movie is good. There is simply nothing exceptional about it besides Paul Muni's performance. The dialogue could be better and the supporting characters could be more interesting, but all in all, it isn't bad. It is simply well constructed, and that isn't a bad thing. Whilst it may be simple, it holds our attention, which is the doing of Muni's performance.
Outstanding biography of Louis Pasteur, with Paul Muni giving his usual outstanding performance, and this one won him an Oscar. This is yet another great Warner Brothers biography from the 1930's, impeccably produced.
