Now, Which One is Paul Muni?
23 August 2008 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

He's the goofy Quebecois trapper speaking with an accent, that's who. With World War Two raging in Europe, Great Britain was trying to make sure that the French-speaking Quebecois didn't decide to throw another revolution, which is why Laurence Olivier played one in 49TH PARALLEL. Nothing loath, Warner Brothers, not quite knowing how to deal with its acknowledged Great Actor, Paul Muni, who liked nothing better than to disappear into a bushy beard and an accent, cut a deal with Zanuck at Fox for him to appear in this film, in which he appears in a short beard. Which made him very hard to offer as a star and he would make one more war-based picture next year, playing a clean-shaven Norwegian, before disappearing from the screen for a few years. What the heck: George Tobias was cheaper for all-purpose ethnics.

Anyway, this is a pretty amusing picture, if you don't take any of it seriously. The cinematography, co-credited to George Barnes, is very handsome. Muni plays the role for laughs, the roles are filled out with leading character actors and the soundtrack skips between 'Aupres de ma Blonde' and 'Oh, Canada.' Good enough.
