Producer-director Stanley Kramer’s Inherit the Wind (1960) is a classic courtroom drama based on the real-life Scopes “Monkey” Trial of 1925. Here, a Clarence Darrow-like defense attorney (Spencer Tracy) faces off against a fundamentalist prosecutor (Fredric March) in the case of a young schoolteacher (Dick York) brought to trial for breaking a “wicked law” (in the words of Tracy’s civil libertarian lawyer) that forbids the teaching of evolution in local public schools. Creationism versus evolution is the still-relevant theme of the film, which passionately asserts “the right to think.” Nominated for four Academy Awards®.
