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 (23 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."
