A meaningful play based on the Scopes Monkey Trial of 1925, in which a Tennessee teacher was tried for teaching evolution. The accused was a slight, frightened man who'd deliberately broken the law. His trial was a Roman circus, the chief gladiators being the two great legal giants of the century. Locked in mortal combat, they bellowed & roared imprecations & abuse. The spectators sat uneasily in the sweltering heat with murder in their hearts, barely restraining themselves. America's freedom was at stake. "Jerome Lawrence & Robert E. Lee were classic Broadway scribes who knew how to crank out serious plays for thinking Americans...Inherit the Wind is a perpetually prescient courtroom battle over the legality of teaching evolution... We're still arguing this case all the way to the White House."--Chicago Tribune "Powerful...a crackling good courtroom play...[that] provides two of the juiciest roles in American theater."--Copley News Service "[This] historical drama...deserves respect."--The Columbus Dispatch

This film used to be shown on NBC's "Saturday Night At The Movies" now and then. Amazingly, it was less controversial in 1960 than it is today!
For classic movie buffs, you will see many first-class actors doing outstanding performances. Remember, this is a fictionalized version of the Scopes trial -- but much of the courtroom dialogue was taken from court transcripts. This is a must-see!
