Not Rated | | Biography, Drama
The biopic of the famous French muckraking writer and his involvement in fighting the injustice of the Dreyfuss Affair.
The film was shot in reverse order; Paul Muni grew his own beard for the role, and it was trimmed and darkened as he proceeded to scenes where Zola is younger. His makeup took 3-1/2 hours to apply each morning.
I won't write, but I'll remember.
At the beginning of the film, Zola is warned to stop "muckraking." This term did not come into use until about 40 years after the period shown in the film.
