Inherit the Wind (1960)

Watch Trailer

Director: Stanley Kramer
Starring: Spencer Tracy, Fredric March, Gene Kelly


Teacher B.T. Cates is arrested for teaching Darwin’s theories. Famous lawyer Henry Drummond defends him; fundamentalist politician Matthew Brady prosecutes. This is a very thinly disguised rendition of the 1925 “Scopes monkey trial” with debates between Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan taken largely from the transcripts.
