Zenith or Zero. — The Zola Film

Zenith or Zero.

The Zola Film.

A film that has for its aim the portrayal of Zola's struggle for truth yet which flagrantly distorts what actually occurred.

A film which is dripping with sentiment like a leaky spout.

A film with some fine sustained overacting.

A film whose emotional crescendo is dependent upon the numbing of the onlooker's critical conscience.

A film which will be a box-office prodigy because people like "Uplift." especially when it's made-to-measure and wrapped up in pretty paper.
