Paul Muni gives an Oscar®-winning performance as Louis Pasteur in this richly entertaining biographical drama. “A monument to the life of a man” (The New York Times), The Story of Louis Pasteur was directed by William Dieterle and nominated for four 1936 Academy Awards®, winning for Actor, Original Story and Screenplay. Ridiculed over his theory that germs cause disease, Louis Pasteur continues his work and eventually finds a cure for anthrax. Despite the warnings of his fiercest critic, Dr. Charbonnet (Fritz Leiber), Pasteur risks imprisonment when he proceeds with the radical idea that injecting humans with the rabies virus will lead to immunization. His beliefs are soon put to the test when Charbonnet agrees to tend to Pasteur’s pregnant daughter (Anita Louise) but will only sterilize his instruments if the scientist agrees to sign a letter stating his hypotheses are worthless.
