A classic in many items: clash of actors, cinicism in the press as a way to satnd at injustice, trust in America, and so on.
View all Inherit the Wind (1960) reviews
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.
Release date: 1 November 1960

Negative Depictions of Real People (24 movies items)

"Ignoring the fact that the Scopes Trial was actually a farce, and was only created to put Dayton, TN on the map, the real life Brady, William Jennings Bryan, was not a raving, egocentric and ignorant person, who hated evolution (even though he didn't believe in it, he was fine with it being taught in schools) who threw a fit at the end of the trial, and was not out to crucify Scopes. In fact, he even offered to pay the fine for him."
