Other Classics

The movie, Inherit The Wind, is explosive courtroom drama at its best.  The story focuses on a small Tennessee town that gained national attention in 1925 when a Biology school teacher was arrested for violating state law by teaching Darwin's theory of Evolution in the classroom.  The infamous "Monkey Trial" that followed is the basis for this film.  The plot centers on a spirited defense attorney who is retained by a Baltimore newspaper man to represent the accussed teacher.  On the other side of the aisle is a prosecutor who faithfully stands behind the Bible and its literal translations of Creation.  While the teacher's students, his girl freind and a handful of others support the teacher, the rest of the town are aginst him and conduct protest marches to further their views.  In the end, the explosive battle between science and fundamental religion is closely examined in this taut, dramatic film masterpiece.  Starring Spnecer Tracy, Frederic March and Gene Kelly among others.  Full screen in black and white.  Released in 1960.  Runtime 127 minutes.
