About Paul Muni

Paul Muni

PAUL MUNI d1967. Austrian-born American stage and film actor of the 1930s, considered one of the most prestigious actors of the period at Warner Brothers Studios. One of the rare actors who was given the privilege of choosing which parts he wanted due to his acting quality. He usually played powerful characters, such as the career defining "Scarface" (1932). He became known for his intense preparation for his parts and was highly skilled in the use of makeup techniques, often immersing himself in study of the real character's traits and mannerisms. His best known films include ; The Valiant (1929) / Scarface (1932) / I am a Fugitive From a Chain Gang (1932) / Black Fury (1935) / The Story of Louis Pasteur (1936) / The Life of Emile Zola (1937) and Juarez (1939. An exceedingly shy man, he was nominated six times for an Oscar, winning once as Best Actor in The Story of Louis Pasteur. He died aged 71 in 1967 from a heart disorder.
