The Story of Louis Pasteur 1936
The story of famed French scientist Louis Pasteur and his pioneering contributions to medicine, including his cure for rabies, his development of an anthrax vaccine, and his insistence on the value of sterilization.

Film starts out with Pasteur already somewhat established, skipping his early life and struggles. His wine and beer discoveries have already been accepted and he’s propagandizing for sterilization of doctors and doctors’ instruments in childbirth. Doesn’t get him very far because of general medical opposition and he turns to treatment of anthrax in sheep and cattle. Gets that over and is admitted into the French Academy, although still scoffed at by the majority of his confreres. Works on a cure for rabies and hydrophobia for the rest of the picture. His reward finally is general acclaim.
