The Story of Louis Pasteur Reviews
(1936) The Story of Louis Pasteur
Well constructed story about a real life French chemist and his contributions to vaccination which includes rabies and the 'Black plague'! What's excellent about this film is that despite it's running time of less than a hour and a half, the movie cuts to the chase without dragging it's viewers, and upon watching it as of late, doesn't appear to be old at all, after the first 10 minutes the story builds up to the fantastic finale! Story slightly exaggerated but is necessary to appeal viewers watching this film! Winner of three Oscars including Best Actor for Paul Muni, Best Screenplay and Best Original Story. Lost the Best Picture Oscar to "The Great Ziegfield"!
