Spencer Tracy and Frederic March go head-to-head as opposing attorneys in this blistering courtroom drama based on the famed "Scopes Monkey Trial," where a Tennessee teacher must defend himself for teaching Darwinism. Gutsy for its time, this 1960 film pulls no punches and is powered by intelligent and impassioned speeches that border on holy zeal. Given the current debate over school curricula around the countryfrom Florida's "Don't Say Gay" bill to the backlash against Critical Race TheoryInherit feels as relevant as ever.
