This fictionalized biography of French author and activist Émile Zola (Paul Muni) depicts his friendship with painter Paul Cézanne, his rise to fame with the publication of Nana, and his paramount defense of Alfred Dreyfus—a Jewish officer in the French army unjustly accused of treason. Directed by William Dieterle. (1937, 116 min. No MPAA rating.)

This screening is part of the Classic Films series "Hollywood Biopics under the Hays Code": After the introduction of the Hays Code in 1930, which set a standard of “moral” guidelines for American film, some of Hollywood’s film studio giants responded by producing blockbuster biopics of famous individuals who triumphed in the face of adversity. Sit back, relax, and get inspired!
