  • SpacePirate's rating of the film Dr. Socrates

    Apparently Muni only made this so Warner would allow him to make his pet project, the Louis Pasteur biopic. Idk how true that is, but Muni does seem to be going through the motions a bit here. Muni, imo, opinion is the first real method actor, followed by guys like John Garfield and eventually Brando. He just seems wasted here, but this one is better than the odd remake with Bogey. 3.5 stars
